Program Description:
 

Alternative Student Break
 
in Nicaragua (Non-Credit)

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Central America faces some of the most abject poverty on our continent. Without adequate food, housing, and care, people struggle to ward off disease as well as keep their families safe. Alternative Student Breaks will be working with Panorama Service Expeditions to not only assist with the construction of affordable housing solutions, but also harvest the Nicaraguan land and provide care to children in need. Be prepared to work hard, rain or shine, and to be flexible with assigned tasks, all while connecting with members of your Auburn family and the local community.
