Travel to Peru & Give Back to a Global Community with the Y’s Global Teens
Students will help make real changes in the communities that we serve while working hard and learning from local leaders and teens about the difference facets of need existing within their communities. They will also have the opportunity to explore the world famous UNESCO heritage site Machu Picchu.
Participants will be required to attend monthly preparatory meetings prior to going on the trip to familiarize themselves with issues related to service, international travel, cultural awareness, Peruvian customs, and more.
Ages: 13 -17
|Teens who engage in community service not only help to foster stronger communities, they also develop skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. Learn more about service learning opportunities with the Y!
