High School Global Service Trip
International Community Service Opportunity in Tola, Nicaragua
Spend your school break on a high impact community service trip to Tola, Nicaragua! The Foundation for Sustainable Development’s (FSD) Global Service Trips (GST) offer high school students community service opportunities that advance international communities while advancing their education. For more than 18 years FSD has enhanced the capacity of community organizations around the world to address health, social, environmental, and economic issues.
GSTs are one to two weeks long with flexible dates within Fall/Winter 2013 and provide curriculum and training that is tailored to high school groups, including the fundamentals of community-based development. Throughout the trip, high school students are supported by FSD staff and community partners in a safe and secure environment. Price range: $1485 per participant, plus airfare. Funding resources are available.
Public Health Awareness: Collaborate with the local health center and youth groups to educate community members about public health concerns, such as dengue
Environmental Conservation: Work with the local high school to support their Environmental Studies curriculum, and raise consciousness about conservation of natural habitats.
Youth development: Support the expansion of the recently constructed library, Biblioteca de Limon II, a place for students and adults to study, read, and meet.

You can create your own GST by becoming a group leader. You and your group will customize a timeline and project focus that best meets your professional and personal outlook, while supporting the efforts of one of our partner organizations. Currently, we do not have any open GST opportunities for individuals.
