Volunteer Spring Break in Ecuador

Why settle for snow and ice when you could spend SPRING BREAK in TROPICAL ECUADOR? Put your service learning to work by volunteering in a variety of indigenous communities. Experience the authentic Amazon jungle and the Andean Highlands, where you will have the opportunity to work closely with a locally-run indigenous school and engage in projects that benefit the community. Students will work with local conservation organizations which aid efforts of the Amazonian forest while working closely with native people. Other activities will include: hiking, visiting a Shaman, trips to volcanic hot springs, all while viewing some of the most stunning scenery in the world. Approximate cost is about $2,000.
