ETHOS 10-Day International Breakouts

During a 10-day international breakout, students will have the opportunity to work with non-government organizations as they work to improve the quality of life for their community. Possible locations are Quilacahuin, Chile; Sabana Grande, Nicaragua; and Huehuetenango, Guatemala. 

Student projects are varied but past immersions have included helping to build sustainable farms, clean water systems, implementing renewable technologies - solar cooking, solar PV, micro-hydroelectric systems, solar water heating systems, and biogas digesters - in rural communities.
