My Global Leadership Volunteer Trip

Dear Friends and Family, 

I am writing to you because I have just discovered a wonderful opportunity for an overseas experience that is bound to change my life. Global Leadership Adventures (GLA), an international education organization, offers a unique two-week summer program that sends high school students to countries such as Peru, Costa Rica, Ghana, and India. GLA’s mission is to operate programs around the world, which offer educational, service and leadership opportunities for young people in order to foster leadership development and global citizenship. 

With my interest in helping people and learning more about how medicine can help people globally, I am excited to meet the international staff and students, volunteer with local communities and explore the history and culture of a country and community living in poverty while developing my leadership potential. 

GLA is a recognized leader in its field, sending hundreds of high school students overseas every year. All Global Leadership Adventures programs are run solely by student contributions, and therefore each program has a fee. The fee for this two week program, including all meals, lodging, travel medical insurance, and in-country transportation, totals $3,999 and does not include airfare to the country I plan to explore. 

To be able to go on this program I need financial assistance, which I hope you can help provide. If you would like to write me a check instead you can email me at 

Should you have any questions about the program, please call me, or call Global Leadership Adventures at +1 (858) [phone redacted]. Your support and the support of those you know are greatly appreciated. I look forward to sharing this extraordinary experience with you upon my return. 

Thank you in advance. 

Yours truly,

Ruth Geller
