Program Impact

Bright Light Volunteers creates opportunities for educators and students to experience the world as travelers, not tourists. All of our programs are designed to provide transformative, culturally immersive, experiences abroad. Our alumni return home with stories of pickup baseball games in Cuba, learning Mayan cooking techniques in Guatemala, and hugging llamas in Peru! Our programs in Latin America, South America, Southeast Asia, Europe, and Africa include exemplary itineraries, experiential learning opportunities, community-led service projects, and highly qualified program directors to accompany you on your GSLC experience.
