Make a Difference Abroad this Spring Break with Florida Alternative Breaks

Filed under Opportunities, Service on January 26, 2015.

#UFGivesBack in a region rich in history, culture, and delicious food. Florida Alternative Breaks invites you to join us for an unforgettable Spring Break in Nicaragua working with marine life, Guatemala working with education, or Costa Rica working with agroecology. Participants will have an experience of a lifetime working hands on with these issues while gaining intimate knowledge of local residents and the issues that are most important to them. Participants will also have plenty of opportunities to view the sites, engage with the culture, and gain memories they will hold dear forever. Spanish speakers can also practice their Spanish and make connections abroad.

Check out this video made by their International Education trip to Guatemala two years ago. They promise the picture of a school full of children from Guatemala doing the gator chomp will help you make a worthwhile decision.
