Global Explorers, the youth component of No Barriers, is seeking applications for its 2013 Leading the Way program. Next summer, teams will journey to two exciting destinations: the magnificent Grand Canyon and the beautiful Peruvian Highlands. These trips are fantastic opportunities and I highly recommend anyone that qualifies apply!
