2015 Guatemala Spring Break Service Trip Info. Session

In the Fireplace Room at 8pm find out how to join. The annual Guatemala trip is a life changing experience for most of the students, faculty, staff and community members who have participated at one time or another over the past 19 years.  The individuals who go on this trip provide basic services for the poor, oppressed, and neglected in Guatemala with the hopes of improving their conditions. However, it is the individuals who participate in this trip who gain the most from the experience as they learn about the history and people of Guatemala, their role in contributing to global poverty, and how they can change their lives to help improve the human condition of those throughout the world.
