Recognition:

Each semester Global Education will provide training for new GAP participants and host an International Skills Workshop free of charge. Global Ambassadors will be recognized on the Global Education website and given a free t-shirt to wear to events. Any student leading a GAP event will be able to attend for free. GAP will provide a network of professional benefits such as offering references and be a valuable addition to add to experience on resumes.
