GATEway Fall into Service: Honduras Nuevo Paraíso Orphanage
For the first time, GATEway will offer a program whose mission is all about helping others. GATEway Fall into Service will bring our students to the Nuevo Paraíso orphanage in Honduras where they will not only open up their minds to a new culture, but also their hearts. During the 6-day life-changing experience, our GATEmates will roll up their sleeves and help the Honduran community with projects that will make their life just a little bit better. Also another first, this opportunity is intended to serve as part one of X-Term 2020, with students participating in the off-site experience in November 2019 and carrying out a local experience in a related field with children during X-Term week 2020. Students who are interested in hard work and making a difference are invited. While you will earn an estimated 28 hours of community service, we promise that the smiles of the children you help will be all the reward you will need.
Dates: Friday, November 22 – Wednesday, November 27, 2019
(Please note, students will miss school Friday, Monday, and Tuesday. There is no school Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Students will have make-up study hours factored into their day to stay on top of their work).
