Come to Chiapas and have an impact on peoples' lives while improving your Spanish. Work on community building projects in and around San Cristóbal, Chiapas along with area residents. All of our projects have been specifically identified to meet community needs and will be sustainably created.
Every evening participants will take two hours of Spanish class to supplement their service experience. Classes can be individually geared for specific university level Spanish credit requirements.
The program is set up as four separate weeks. You can elect to participate in as many of the weeks as you like. The service component will take place Monday through Friday, with weekends free to explore all that Chiapas has to offer.
1 week $1,000
2 weeks $1,200
3 weeks $1,600
4 weeks $2,000
Fees include all lodging, full breakfast and lunch Monday through Saturday, transportation to and from the project sites, ten hours of language class a week, materials for construction projects and 24-hour staff accompaniment.
