<p>Hi! I am a current high school senior looking to do a community service trip abroad this summer. I went on a trip last summer, but it was only three weeks long and I want to find something longer. If anybody has any suggestions, they would be most appreciated! thanks.</p>
<p>Global Works offers many programs in different locations that seem to fit the bill for community service. The problem is that many of them are expensive, but you be the judge for yourself.</p>
<p>Sorry this doesn't answer your question but maybe you could answer mine? I'm actually looking for a program that is about 3 weeks long. Which one did you do?
Sorry for the fake out,
but thank you ;)</p>

it was absolutely incredible and i loved it.</p>
<p>try Global Leadership Adventures (GLA)... I went to the Galapagos Islands last summer with GLA and it was AMAZING. they have great staff, the best adventures, and I learned a lot while I was there. I went for two weeks for financial reasons but they also offer programs that are 21 days longer and some are longer than a month. I am going to Bali with them this upcoming summer. Can't wait- I know it'll be an unforgettable experience!</p>
<p>try Global Leadership Adventures! not to be cliche, but you won't forget it and you meet the most amazing people!

<p>I would recommend Global Leadership Adventures (GLA). I went to Ghana with them for 3 weeks last summer however they now have 5 weeks programmes in Africa, South America and Asia. They are combination programmes. For example you can go to Tanzania and Ghana for 5-6 weeks. They offer a lot of different programmes that all include volunteering. It is a very safe and secure programme and you meet other high school students from all around the globe. It was the most memorable 3 weeks of my life. </p>

<p>I hope this was helpful!</p>
<p>There are tons of different options as far as summer abroad programs. Some are very community service based (ex Amigos), and others are more language and travel based (ex EduCulture International). It really depends on what you're looking for in your program, where you want to go, and what you want to do while you're there.
I recommend doing as much research as possible, calling the companies you are interested in traveling with and then weighing the options. You might just find exactly what you're looking for after a bit of research!</p>
<p>Along with the posts above, I would recommend a GLA program. I went on one this summer and it was absolutely incredible. They have programs ranging from 1-3 weeks, but I'm pretty sure that they give you the option to combine programs to create a longer travel experience.</p>
