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!"
