Operation Groundswell is looking for globally active and socially conscious students to join us this winter in Guatemala. We will venture off the beaten path to experience Mayan culture first-hand through a meaningful service learning initiative. We will learn about the ongoing fight for justice in the aftermath of a decades-long civil war from those who have been directly affected. Our journey will take us over volcanoes and across rivers as we learn about Guatemala’s dark past and bright future.
If you’re into cultural exchange, fulfilling community service, and off-the-beaten path adventure, apply for our Guatemala Winter Break program before December 9th!
Can’t travel this winter or want to travel elsewhere? We also have a number of programs in the spring and summer all around the world!
