We are calling all high school students and faculty with a passion for service to join a Global Impact Academy program this summer! On this interdisciplinary service trip, your group will partner with a local school to accomplish 25 hours of service work on WASH, Health and Education projects.

Learn more and sign up today at https://www.squads.org/global-impact-academy/

Here’s a taste of what awaits you:

  • Hands-on service work: Roll up your sleeves and get ready to dig into hands-on service projects focused on WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene), health initiatives, and educational support. On every project, faculty and students will work alongside the Squads Abroad staff and local leaders to build infrastructure projects that will last generations.
  • Immerse yourself in real impact: Become part of a globally recognized non-profit organization, leaving your mark on projects that improve lives and build sustainable futures. This isn’t just about volunteering; it’s about being a catalyst for lasting impact projects in under-resource communities. .
  • Embrace the world: Step outside your comfort zone and explore vibrant cultures with different options of destinations. From the sun-kissed beaches of Belize to the ancient ruins of Greece, every experience broadens your horizons and deepens your understanding of our diverse planet, and changes our perspective of the real world! .
  • Forge lifelong bonds: Connect with like-minded peers and passionate students and faculty from across the globe. Share stories, laughter, and the thrill of making a difference together. These friendships will stay with you long after your plane touches down.

To join the Global Impact Academy, no experience is necessary, just a passion for service and the desire to travel! GIA welcomes all high school students and faculty, regardless of background or academic focus. We believe that everyone has the power to make a difference, and we’ll provide the training and support you need to succeed.

GIA is a real life journey where you’ll team up with fellow students and faculty to tackle real-world challenges. Imagine yourself collaborating with local schools, providing essential health services, building infrastructure projects, and witnessing the power of your actions firsthand.

Choose your adventure and make your mark:

Belize: Dive into the turquoise waters and vibrant coral reefs while supporting schools and communities in need.

Greece: Unravel the mysteries of ancient history and lend a hand to revitalizing local infrastructure.

Guatemala: Immerse yourself in the rich Mayan culture and contribute to education and healthcare initiatives.

Panama: Embrace the rhythm of rainforest life and join forces to improve sanitation and hygiene access.

Don’t miss out! Secure your spot for you and your group by February 30, 2024. Students and faculty must travel in groups of 4 or more. The program fees cover everything, including airfare, food, lodging, and expert guidance. Read more about each program and the associated costs on the Global Impact Academy website.
