Program Description:

Ecuador Winter Break-Out

About the Program 

Winter BreakOuts through Campus Ministry’s Center for Social Concern are a great way to learn about a new culture, meet new people, and grow in cultural understanding, while helping others.  Rooted in the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, participants in our program should grow in an understanding of global solidarity, the dignity of the human person, a preferential option for the poor and vulnerable, as well as growing in their own faith and role as a global citizen. 

Each BreakOut has a reflection leader to help facilitate the orientation process as well as the reflection along the way while traveling.

This group will travel to Ecuador and work with the Marianists. They will learn about the local history, culture, climate, government and topography. Participants will see the city life of Quito and the rural life in the rainforests in the Otangachi and Otonga area, volunteering with the local community. Students will grow in understanding of the local culture and the joys and struggles of maintaining a viable rainforest environment for the planet and its inhabitants. Some knowledge of Spanish is important for this BreakOut.
