Activity Description

  • Students work side by side with locals on community-driven service projects. We partner with non-profits and NGOs for the service learning experience to make sure our contributions are both meaningful and sustainable. The group lives in the communities we serve --  celebrating indigenous customs and forming lasting connections with locals.Through hands-on work and deep exposure to the local culture, students learn vital collaboration and problem-solving skills, and they return home inspired to make a difference.
