Testimonials from our GLASS Alumni and Parents
"I was so surprised to, upon arrival, love each of the mentors and students so quickly. The commonality between us all was a goal to love and serve and we all did it so well."
"It was amazing experience for my daughter and the opportunity for growth was phenomenal and she came home so different than she left. It was the best thing I could have done for her."
Parent of Lora B.
"My daughter came back visibly more confident in her abilities and her future in a way I did not anticipate."
Parent of Alexa K.
"The mentors surprised me most when it came to GLASS. They are some of the greatest people I’ve ever met—so willing to share their stories, successes and mistakes, and it’s all to help us learn and be prepared in life. These are people who genuinely care about and want the best for us, despite the fact we’ve only met them in person for a week."
"The workouts were legitimate, so GLASS wasn't just all about bonding. The organized self-reflection was a perfect way to cap off a senior year and prep our daughter for college."

“My favorite part of GLASS was the experience of strangers from all over the country coming together and becoming a true family. The positive community of confident leaders makes it such an amazing place to really grow as individuals.”
"I think GLASS was really an opportunity to reach out of my comfort zone and it was certainly something that surprised me even when I got home. The program offers you so many experiences to step out of your comfort zone and create new and amazing habits to carry on in the future."

"Nashya came back home, inspired to do great things, not just in sports but school and community. She was motivated to reach out and expand herself beyond her comfort zone. She came back with such confidence—thank you."
Parent of Nashya V.
"I was so happy when I discovered that on the trip we would be doing community service that had a lasting impact, because it’s something I had wanted to be involved in for so long. It was so incredible to see that the GLASS girls were really making a difference there, each session at a time."
"The daily leadership workshops taught us what it means to be a leader and how to become one. They really helped me have a more positive attitude towards life. They also helped me become more social, expressive, and confident."
"There was something about the mentorship and support this program provided. Alexa came home a different person with more confidence in all aspects of her life, and a focus on leadership she took back to her cross country team, as well as helped her focus on the bigger picture in life, and being able to look beyond high school to what she could do in her life."
