GLA Logo White                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Seasonal Staff Application   

In the GLA experience, bright students connect with accomplished Directors and Mentors. This is because our staff are not chaperones  they’re experts who work alongside our local partners. By design, each GLA program is co-managed by both a Local and International Director. The collaboration is key: each Local Director has intimate knowledge of the host community and culture and each International Director has in-depth professional experience working with youth. All of our staff hold university degrees – many with graduate degrees. International Director and Mentor positions are available in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America.  

We appreciate your interest in working with us and will be in touch soon. Our interview process begins in mid-October and runs through March. We will contact all candidates via email.
