Program Description:
The Center for Civic Engagement & Learning offers an international Alternative Spring Break service trip to Nicaragua. Students travel to a rural, coastal community to work with a nonprofit organization called Waves of Hope. Service projects include facilitating activities with the local school, helping to improve community infrastructure through basic construction projects, and working on after-school projects with a local youth group.  In addition to engaging with the local community, students will also have the opportunity to go horseback riding, visit the town of Granada, and participate in a zipline excursion.
