This semester intertwines personal growth with adventure, service, and a greater awareness of the global community as you travel throughout Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica with a small group of 12 other intrepid travelers. In Guatemala and Nicaragua study Spanish, live with home stay families, and teach at local community schools with your new language skills. Then volunteer at a sustainable arts center and live in an eco-lodge as you learn about permaculture and alternative building techniques, enriching your experience as you embrace local cuisine, folklore, and indigenous culture. Complement your personal journey with trekking through the Guatemalan Highlands, sea turtle conservation in Costa Rica, and a mindfulness retreat to explore your inner self. End the epic adventure earning your SCUBA diving certification off the coast of Roatan!
