Family Service Trips to Nicaragua, April 2017
ViviendasLeón is offering two spring vacation service trips to Nicaragua for families to introduce their children to international service and citizenship while being immersed a new place, people, language and culture. We offer a seven-day program during Holy Week, April 10-16, and an eight-day program during Spring Break, April 16-23, that includes 4 days in León and 4 days in the Miraflór Cloud Forest Preserve.
In León we will explore the culture and history of the city during morning sessions, and work alongside rural families who are part of our rural community development programs in the afternoons. Evenings are spent at dinner with host families and afterward with the group reflecting on the experiences of the day. For those continuing to Miraflor we will stay on farms with guest accommodations, and spend the days exploring the forest habitat-its trees, animals, rivers and trails; learn about forest protection and organic farming, and take part in farm activities. See individual trip pages on our website for more trip details.
An info night is scheduled for December 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 in San Francisco at the home of Holly Hagens, 3766 Clay St.
