Service learning opportunity for teachers!
Travel to Guatemala this summer for service, education, and adventure with Limitless Horizons Ixil!
University credit available!
summer, LHI will host an 8-day or 2-week service-learning trip focused
on education in the indigenous community of Chajul, Guatemala. This is a
unique opportunity to observe classrooms, engage in dialogue with
teachers and school directors, and learn first-hand about educational
experiences from Chajul's students themselves -- all in a beautiful
remote part of Guatemala.
service projects have included planting organic gardens, supporting
Chajul's public library, building classroom walls, and preparing
professional development workshops with local teachers. You will also
get to play games with youth, take beautiful hikes, learn to make
tortillas, hear from an ex-guerrilla from the Guatemalan civil war, take
a boat tour of Lake Atitlan, visit a sacred Mayan site, shop at the
world famous market of Chichicastenango, and much more.
