At a Glance


1 Week • all costs included • fundraising available

Travel to sunny Bahía de Caraquez, Ecuador and stay in the heart of this coastal city. Work alongside local students in in their greenhouses, collaborate on murals, then camp overlooking the beach, and engage with student-driven projects throughout the estuary. Enjoy tranquil evenings watching bio-luminescent waves as the sun sets, and adventure across Ecuador. Finish the trip with an adventure, down the coast, or into the cloud/rain forest. This is the birth of a youth environmental movement, where students develop technical skills and the drive to change the world.

Yes, the trip leaders are inspiring because of the way the program came together and was manifested. After working with people here and looking at our progress from prior trips I feel powerful and able to make a change if I put my mind to it.
