This cross-generational program partners with faith-based educators in two Belize locations and a group from First Lutheran Church in Brookings to serve the educational needs of K-12 school children and communities. Past projects included assisting/teaching the students in the classroom and after-school programs, improving school buildings, working on the school farm. and other projects. In 2019 we will add a focus on exploring biodiversity with local guides in various settings. Service-learning provides a structure for working with community members while learning about the local culture. Belize is an English-speaking country and one of the safest locations in Central America. We will visit Mayan ruins, snorkel, and explore tropical forests.
