Program Description:

Belize Winter Break-Out

About the Program 

Students on this year’s Belize Winter BreakOut will be partnering with A Broader View and working in a children’s center just outside Belize City. During the mornings, the group will help with general upkeep and rehab of the center’s main building, mainly doing painting and gardening. In the afternoons, they will work one on one with the children at the children’s center, helping them with their homework and providing companionship and new relationships. This is great opportunity to reach out to children in Belize and share your life with them. Read a reflection from one of 2012's participants.  Please note that Belize is an English speaking country.

 Cost: $1000 (program expenses, room and board). Airfare is approximately $900.

Curriculum

As a part of your BreakOut or Immersion experience, you will be registered in an Experiential Learning Course (EXP). This is a non-credit bearing course which is the BreakOut/Immersion experience itself. It will show up on your official UD transcript that you participated in this service-learning experience as a measure of your further involvement and learning here at UD.
