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.

1.5 Weeks • all costs included • fundraising available

Travel to Teustepe, a small city in the foothills of Nicaragua within the state of Boaco. Work alongside local student environmental leaders as we develop sustainable agriculture projects and other student-driven projects throughout the area. Discover local waterfalls, and bond with local leadership council students before traveling to Masaya and Granada to explore Nicaragua’s colonial cities, artisanal markets, and the isletas- volcano islands dotting the largest lake in Central America.This is the birth of a youth environmental movement, where students develop technical skills and the drive to change the world.
