MEANINGFUL. SUSTAINABLE. UNFORGETTABLE.
A group of our students were fortunate enough to have spent their February break in Tanzania, Africa!
Meaningful Service - Students were assigned to replace a floor in a school in the remote village of Oldonyawas in the Ashura region. Through this collaborative work, both our students and the community were enriched.
Cultural Immersion- Students lived, stayed and interacted with the community We learned new customs, participated in Swahili language lessons, tasted new foods and delight in the beautiful landscape.
Leadership Development- We developed and strengthened our leadership skills through activities and workshops, investigated global issues and explored social justice and environmental issues.
What our students had to say...
"Despite all my preparation, my senses were overloaded..."

"Being a global citizen is not simply traveling from one country to another, to be a true global citizen you need to immerse yourself into the everyday life and culture of every country you visit."

"I travelled to China last year to expand upon my knowledge of the world, and be able to see how life is in other places. I’ve always wanted to travel the world, and China was a great experience to do so. I can only hope Japan brings on the same amount of fun and knowledge as China did."
