Guatemala Winter Trip
Date: December 27, 2014 – January 4, 2015
Set in high in the mountains just outside the city of Antigua, the small farming village of Vuelta Grande reflects what daily life is like in rural Guatemala. Indigenous people farm on steep mountain slopes at an elevation of 4,000 feet. Boys as young as eight begin to work in the field while girls help their mothers to tend to little ones and to perform household chores. Come volunteer in Vuelta Grande.
We're excited to include PennNYC as part of this winter trip!
Costa Rica Spring Trip
Date: March 7, 2015 – March 14, 2015
In the tropical, coffee-producing region of Costa Rica lies a tranquil town called Providencia de Dota. Fun-loving, warm and united is the best way to describe the people of Providencia. Life is simple, but very, very rich. Come help us to educate the children on how to maintain and strengthen their environment, as well as provide them with greater opportunities in their future. Costa Rica awaits you.
Guatemala Family Trip
Date: June 28, 2015 – July 5, 2015
The Guatemala Family Trip is designed for parents with young children or teens. These trips are less physically demanding than our traditional trips and have a greater emphasis on the activities and experiences in the classroom with the students of the Vuelta Grande. You will completely immerse yourselves in the culture and family life of Guatemala, and your kids will make new friends.

Our trips entail a combination of volunteer work, cultural activities and site-seeing.
