New Vista High School



  • About
    The New Vista High School group will be traveling to Guatemala from May 5-12, 2019. As a Global Education Squad the group will partner with an underserved school in the community of Tecpan to improve educational outcomes. The group will stay at our private and safe home-base accommodations in Tecpan where our local professional staff provide all transportation, food, lodging, and activities. The group will be matched with a local school where they will spend each weekday morning completing valuable small construction projects and classroom support. Each afternoon the group will enjoy guided cultural activities in the surrounding area.
