Global Scholars 2015-2016 Travel Opportunities Presentation
We will hold an informational night highlighting the 2016 travel opportunities on Wednesday, February 25th at 6pm in the BBX Theater.
These trips are part of the Global Scholars Program we initiated last year. In short, we are offering thematically based trips around service learning, leadership, language and cultural immersion. In addition, in 2016 we are offering a science expedition in the Amazon. At the conclusion of the presentation students will have the opportunity to register for the upcoming trips. Space is limited and students will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis.

Before highlighting the upcoming trips I would like to share information regarding a service learning trip that transpired over February vacation. Thirty-two students and four chaperones spent a week in Peru. Students immersed themselves in the culture of Peru, learning about local cuisine, touring the Sacred Valley, and visiting modern and colonial parts of Lima. In addition, they learned about ancient and contemporary art, explored Machu Picchu as well as other sacred Inca archaeological sites. The trip culminated in a two day service project at the Yachay Wasi kindergarten. Below is a link complete with videos and pictures of this amazing trip.
