Review for Gold Star Teen Adventures, Fayetteville, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

GSTA is the most impactful organization I have ever been involved with. They give so many opportunities to Children of the Fallen to experience different parts of the world through meaningful activities and useful skills. Whether it’s through backpacking, scuba diving, or rock climbing, the teens are definitely challenged and motivated by GSTA to be great people and future leaders.

Review for Gold Star Teen Adventures, Fayetteville, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I grew up as a Gold Star Teen and found out about GSTA through other Gold Star Teens I grew up with and through some of my peers at the Naval Academy. I am super grateful that GSTA has welcomed me into the family as a mentor. They brought me on board the team when I was a plebe, and I have been on trips with the teens all over the world from North Carolina to Kauai to Belize over the past three years. The relationships I have built extend far beyond the amazing adventures that go on throughout the year. I'm truly blessed to be apart of this family that I know will be with me for life.
