GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
The trip allows students to become aware of the interconnectedness of the world and to critically assess how globalization influences different aspects of people’s lives. This experience aims to nurture respect for all, build a sense of belonging to a common humanity and help students become responsible and active global citizens. Traveling to a developing country and immersing students in a local community will empower them to assume active roles to face and resolve global challenges and to become proactive contributors to a more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure world.
On this program, students will work with locals on sustainable, meaningful, and hands-on projects.

Improve the learning environment
Nearly half of the children under the age of 5 have stunted growth due to severe malnutrition. These rates are alarming considering that malnutrition is linked to stunted physical and mental development. Join our team in Guatemala and help improving their learning spaces by working on schools decorating their rooms, teaching and designing teaching materials among other activities.
Help children develop habits, skills and talent
Play a hands-on role in providing much-needed support within a local community school. Work on one-to-one activities, provide education around hygiene, and work on activities that will help children discover their talent. The aim of this work is to provide additional care, attention and most importantly, companionship and guidance to children.
