This 9 day program through three cities in Belize gives students the opportunity to give back to the local community through volunteering and taking part in service learning projects.

This program centers around the Cornerstone Foundation, whose mission is to develop and empower the community through improving the lives of children and adults in the surrounding area.

Students will be working with the students of the Foundation with both educational and recreational activities.

Highlights of projects and activities travelers will assist with include tutoring and homework assistance, practicing extracurricular activities such as singing and sports, going on outings with the children, assisting in maintaining the yard of the facility, and much more.

Students will participate in special activities with the children including traditional chocolate making, painting a mural, and taking part in a Foundation Fun Day, which includes activities that are typical for youth camps, such as games, storytelling, crafts, and more.
