Experience Ut Prosim May 22 - June 11, 2017!

This summer, immerse yourself in a powerful learning and service experience that will take you from the Amazon rainforest to the high Andes. In the rainforest, we’ll focus on environmental conservation and protection projects with ARCAmazon. In the Andes, we’ll partner with Llipin Yahuar on community development projects and tree reforestation.

Along with our service work, we will spend time together reflecting on our experiences and the social issues we’ll encounter on the trip. As we grapple with difficult questions together, we’ll share our unique perspectives on service, justice, and social change.

Over three weeks, you’ll serve with and learn about these two nonprofits, visit Incan sites, connect with new people and more. Join us, and broaden your horizons with this unique international service-learning trip!

Estimated cost: $2,800 + airfare. The $2,800 fee includes ground transportation in country, flight from Puerto Maldonado to Cusco, food, lodging, trip to Machu Picchu, and project donation.
