This unique leadership and service trip program in the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador offers the experience of a true “off-the-grid” lifestyle. Situated in a remote area of the rainforest, students trek through the jungle to reach their home base—an important initial experience with the magic and mystery of this captivating place. After action-packed days of community interaction and service work, they can relax in hammocks for evenings of leisure and reflection. A thoughtful combination of meaningful service activities and leadership exercises creates a truly unique educational experience for students.  In addition, many educators work with our team to transform this service trip into a unique design-thinking experience that combines pre-trip interactions with our field study center in Ecuador with the opportunity to develop and implement solutions for the local community around the very real-world challenges and issues the students have been exploring in class.
