Global Volunteers – Middle School

Community Development in Peru’s Mountain Villages

 

Part of Fairfax County’s International Service Learning Program (ISLP)

Open to FCPS Middle School Students in grades 7-8 (as of Sept. 2018)

Travel Dates: April 13 – 21, 2019 (Spring Break)

Focus: High up in the mountains where rolling greens lead to snow-capped peaks, you’ll journey into the remote villages surrounding Cuzco. As you explore the heart of Inca civilization, you’ll learn how locals preserve history, art and heritage, while also gaining insight into the challenges they face. Working together with community members, you’ll build long-term solutions to support economic sustainability, agriculture and access to education. As you foster meaningful relationships within the community, you’ll celebrate customs and help empower a village for generations to come. Service Learning projects may include promoting responsible tourism to help support the local economy and conservation efforts, planning community gardens to improve food security, or building trails for local community members. Participants will earn 20 FCPS approved service hours.
