The Cornerstone Foundation’s youth program is a special educational program for children that offers mentoring, tutoring, and activities such as mural painting, all to help improve these children’s lives through education.

Travelers will help with the daily education activities and spend time each day at the local primary school observing the classroom. There will be in-depth discussions on education in Belize.

Cultural activities include tours of Cahal Pech and Xunatunich Mayan Ruins, a visit to a local farmer’s market, and a traditional chocolate making experience.
