Immerse yourself in Ecuadoran life on a Community Service or Language Learning program for high school or middle school students. Practice your Spanish each day as you work hand in hand with Ecuadorian friends in a small mountain village. Undertake meaningful community service initiatives ranging from volunteer construction projects to running a summer camp for local children to helping farmers harvest crops. On our language immersion program, live for one week with a welcoming local family for a one-week homestay. Continue to the Galápagos Islands for outdoor exploration, learning, and continued Spanish speaking.


*Use your Spanish with Ecuadorian friends during a community workday (or minga) to refurbish a local building.
