It has always been a desire of mine to travel the world and help others. When the opportunity to volunteer as a chaperone for Children's Global Alliance appeared, I jumped at the chance. At first I was intimidated by the program's strict layout, but the further into the process I immersed myself, the more I realized there was a reason for everything. Traveling to a foreign country with teenagers is not an easy feat and I feared how both they and I would handle the situation. I have never fallen into a role so easily and felt so comfortable so far out of my comfort zone. CGA really helped me to find a new part of myself, as well as transform the lives of every student volunteer who took part. I was so proud of the growth these kids achieved by the end of 3 short weeks, I felt like a proud parent. Not a single person involved, whether by donating, volunteering or being helped, was left untouched by this process. Every day at work, all I can talk about is my 3 weeks in Cambodia with 9 amazing teenagers from Vail and the extraordinary people we encountered there.

Children’s Global Alliance is a 501(C)3 non-profit program based in Vail, Colorado. The organization was created in 2010 to fill the void of large-scale volunteer experiences for children ages 12-16. This most impressionable age group is capable of extraordinary things, yet rarely trusted with extraordinary opportunities.
The objective of our organization is to offer service-learning opportunities for students from the United States to some of the world’s most poverty stricken countries. While in these countries, students are able to volunteer with the poor and sometimes orphaned children who live there. Children’s Global Alliance gives student volunteers unparalleled hands-on experience and allows them to be immersed in a completely different way of life. Our young volunteers are able to witness an up close and personal example of what life is like for children living in poverty. The volunteers also gain a greater appreciation for their own circumstances that lasts long after they return home. We are currently working with an orphanage in Cambodia, a school for children with special needs in Nicaragua and a school and orphanage in Tanzania.

The growth that former student volunteers have experienced is immeasurable. Children’s Global Alliance gives student volunteers the platform to reach further and accomplish more than they ever have. Being able to simultaneously help the children in third-world countries with clothing, food, medical supplies and funding has also brought immense joy and much needed relief to these parts of the world.

Be able to secure more funding to provide this experience for every student who applies.
