COVID-19 Program Updates
Due to global health & safety concerns and travel restrictions related to the coronavirus, Global Works has decided to pause some of their upcoming programs temporarily and may be offering flexible booking options as well. Learn more about COVID-19 updates to stay tuned regarding program information.
On this Panama program, we snorkel around the coral reefs of the San Blas Islands, tour Casco Viejo and the Panama Canal, surf on world-class Pacific waves, participate in traditional Kuna dances, mola weavings, and dugout canoe races. Students also practice Spanish with Panamanian students, experience a homestay in a small, rural village, engage in leader-guided homestay language exercises and activities. Community service is at the heart of every Global Works trip and, on this one, students earn 30-40 community service hours through volunteering at the Hogar Malambo Orphanage, teaching English, organizing a ‘Dia de Actividades’ for local school children, refurbishing a school library and sports facilities, planting organic gardens, and participating in reforestation efforts.
