ALA Alumni Educators/Interns

Our team of professional program managers, experienced educators, dynamic alumni, and dedicated interns offer participants a unique and exciting camp experience. They bring to life ALA's flagship BUILD curriculum, create unforgettable memories of life in South Africa, and set the stage for you to build your global network. ALA alumni, who come back to campus for GSP from universities across the globe, represent some of the best talent that the continent has to offer. You'll learn from an emerging African leader that has been selected by the Academy for his or her talent and passion.

 ALA's core values form a powerful foundation for our programs: Integrity, Compassion, Curiosity, Diversity, Humility, Excellence
