Spring '19 and Fall '19 Programs Now Open!
Learn about Sustainability and immerse yourself in Spanish language over the course of Carpe Diem's Central America semester. Students explore the complex issues of sustainability through rural environmental projects, including SCUBA certification and turtle conservation under the supervision of bonafide marine biologists. We strive to make sustainability projects real and actual by dropping students into communities that are pioneering responsible and innovative ways to tackle some of mankind's most complex issues.
Students immerse themselves in Spanish language by living with host families and studying in one-on-on or small-group classes periodically throughout the program. The cohort makes a commitment to practicing Spanish rather than defaulting to English, while also using their Spanish language skills to explore cross-cultural understanding.
Through small groups of no more than 12 students, you will experiment with leadership roles, self-awareness, and purpose.
