About Us

We are a nonprofit organization that partners with a diversity of high schools to provide a powerful travel experience focused on service learning, cultural immersion, and leadership development.

Global Glimpse brings groups of students from a wide variety of high schools together through travel with highly-skilled teachers the summer after their junior year. While abroad, this group of learners explores history, culture, politics, poverty, education, development, and business in a developing country. We challenge students to think critically, collaborate with each other and bring their new-found perspective back to their high schools and communities.

We help our students take their first powerful steps toward engaging the world.
