“Before you can change the world, you must get to know the world and allow the world to get to know you.”

- Christina Craner, Global Glimpse Alumna

About Global Glimpse

Global Glimpse brings together high school students from diverse neighborhoods for an intensive leadership program, culminating in an international experience where participants immerse themselves in a new culture, live and work alongside locals, and volunteer in the community. Since 2007, Global Glimpse has worked with 5,600 students and supplied $9.5 million in scholarships to give students from low-income backgrounds access to its programs.

About United Airlines

United Airlines has partnered with Global Glimpse since 2015 and is now the official and exclusive airline partner, providing air travel for 1,000+ students each year. United understands for many in the Global Glimpse program, this is their first journey abroad, first passport, and first time on a plane. It’s an eye-opening experience that gives Glimpsers a new perspective on their lives and dramatically expands their view of the world. This is what travel is all about and United could not be more proud to contribute to inspiring students and expanding their views with Global Glimpse.
