High School and Other programs in Brazil
GLOBAL LEADERSHIP ADVENTURES
Live on the GLA campus in Fortaleza, Brazil, a region known for its unique Nordestino culture. Immerse yourself in the culture of one of the most diverse nations in the world. Percussion, capoiera, handicrafts, dance and traditional African religion all co-exist alongside a growing economy with modern buildings and bustling streets.
Although Brazil is best known for its stunning beaches, it also suffers from one of the widest economic divides in the world. We are based in a community where over 80% of families receive government welfare, almost half of the children are engaged in child labor, and many have been abused and exploited. You'll volunteer to help give these children a childhood - by playing sports, doing arts and crafts and teaching English.
Throughout your program, you'll meet leaders who are working to defend children's rights. We'll visit a non-profit that teaches kids hip-hop to get them off the streets or another organization that turns kids from the slums into world-class percussionists and dancers.
Due to Fortaleza's rich culture and reputation for being one of the safest cities in Brazil, this is an ideal location from which to explore the region and to help children reclaim some of their lost childhood.
