San Francisco Friends School 2017

More Information

March 31-April 7, 2017
ViviendasLeón and the San Francisco Friends School have partnered since 2010 to develop a global education program for seventh graders that touches on the major themes of global citizenship, cultural immersion, community building, personal agency and international service. Students travel to León for four days working in Sutiaba on projects ranging from food security farming to building construction and arts education. Living in home-stays in León, they experience the cultural richness and warm hospitality of Nicaragua. From there they travel to Miraflor where they explore the biological diversity of the cloud forest and organic farming practices of local families working to preserve the environment that supports their way of life.
