I went during the summer of 2011, and this trip is an incredible opportunity. Not only do you get a chance to glimpse at India's unique and beautiful culture, but work with wonderful organizations as well.
I feel that this trip opens the students' eyes to things they might not have known or ecperienced before.
Parents--the prorgam is very safe and you do not have to worry about your children. I got sick when I was in Dharamsala, and the GLA staff took care of me efficiently. Your kids will come home with a new global perspective and appreciation.
