SchoolBOX volunteers join a friendly and dedicated staff of Canadians and Nicaraguans to build schools in some of the most challenging areas of Nicaragua. On the 10-day adventures, volunteers will spend time directly interacting in the community, getting to know the children, parents, teachers, and officials and working alongside them to build their school.
Volunteers also have the unique opportunity to get to know a side of Nicaraguans that few tourists see: hospitality that comes with familiarity as volunteers will be part of a standing SchoolBOX-community relationship, inviting a more in-depth and substantial experience. Volunteers will also have the chance to see some of Nicaragua's cultural highlights or significant landmarks (like a volcano!). Hard work and dedication is rewarded by relaxing evenings, safe travel and dining, and an experience that changes lives.
