Asia Multi-Programs

Suggested Route 

The suggested route - usually the most direct, least number of stops, and always leaving from a US gateway airport. Often times, multiple students from the same program will be on this flight, simply because it is a popular route to take. We cannot guarantee that other students will be on this flight, but very often, there are. You do not have to take the suggested route, it is just one option. You may take any flight you wish that falls within the flight parameters for each program.

PLEASE NOTE: Multi-programs available this summer are listed here. Should you be interested in a multi-program not listed on the application page, please contact Global Leadership Adventures for further assistance 858-771-0645.
