THE GIRLS LEADERSHIP ACADEMY FOR SERVICE & SPORT
We reach out to high school coaches across the US and Canada asking them to nominate the leaders and emerging leaders in their athletic programs.
All nominees receive an email invitation notifying them of their nomination. They will then work with one of our enrollment advisors to decide if GLASS is the right fit for them.
If a nominee decides to attend, she will join 20-30 other students for the session of her choice and embark on her leadership adventure in Costa Rica!
What People Say
"GLASS improved me as a person, and I notice, even in everyday life, how I absolutely am a better, more confident leader. You cannot get a life-changing experience this amazing anywhere else."
"As a coach, it sounded good, but I just didn't know. I hoped this would offer her a transformative experience and not just a cushy vacation. She somehow got both and so much more. They had lots of fun, but Reilly came back more confident than when she left. The outings and the beach trips were totally earned and the training and insight from college athletes inspiring."
"GLASS was transformative for Erin. The whole experience allowed her to step outside of her comfort zone and learn so much about herself and her potential. The mentors were amazing role models. She returned energized and confident. She absolutely loved the experience. Worth every penny!"
