A view of San Jorge;

Ten students and a 2 faculty advisors spend their spring break giving back to help make our world a better place.

San Jorge, Guatemala is a Mayan town of 3,000 people located on the shores of Lake Atitlán. Student and faculty volunteers will head to San Jorge for spring break to spend the week working on community projects throughout the town, surrounding area and in the local schools. Volunteers will also learn about Guatemalan culture through two homestay nights with a local family. We need your help to make the trip happen--for transportation, supplies, food and lodging costs. Help us reach across borders to assist community development in Guatemala!
