Ecuador Service Learning 2020

Hillside Jr/Sr High School is proud to announce another amazing travel opportunity, a spring break-based service learning trip to Ecuador in 2020!

This tour is operated by EF Educational Tours in partnership with ME to WE and their award-winning charity WE Charity, to give the students local access to communities in Ecuador. They will gain insight into the challenges locals face throughout Ecuador as they work side-by-side building sustainable solutions—empowering communities for generations to come.

From the rugged mountains to the lush Amazon rainforest, they’ll connect with community members as they build schools, participate in clean water initiatives or plant community gardens. They’ll also take part in activities like cooking classes, meeting a local shaman, visiting Quito and the Galapagos Islands where nature, wildlife and Darwin’s theories come together. Every experience will challenge the students to engage with people from different cultures, reflect on their impact and spark a flame for lasting change.

Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity! Keep your eyes open for more information, come and ask Mr. Lawson for details, or visit https://www.eftours.ca/tour-website/2088902RY for more information.
