Your service-learning tour begins in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua. While there, you’ll learn about this beautiful country’s history and politics from the Sandinos to the Sandanistas. Your service work includes an after-school service project for poor children in Guadalupe, León, along with a trip to a non-profit language school. As well as time for daily reflection and discussion, we ensure that there is always a strong educational and cultural component on all of our service trips, and in Nicaragua this includes amazing natural sights like the cloud forest reserve at the Selva Negra Mountain and the Masaya volcano, as well as touring a local coffee plantation and meeting local families, students, and a university professor.
