Students who travel to Vanuatu will experience a cultural exchange with students from Eratap Village secondary school. Students from the USA will learn what the lives of students from Vanuatu are like and vice versa. We will learn about language, food, songs and dances, gender equality, and social issues.
Students will witness the effects of climate change first hand. We will travel to Moso Island to see what it is like to live with the uncertainty of a changing climate. Moso is home to the largest protected reef in Vanuatu and students will get to snorkel and see it first hand. Moso also has a turtle sanctuary where students will see sea turtles and how they are protected and released into the wild.
Students will be able to participate in a service learning project helping a local school. This will be a hands on project the whole group can participate in which benefit the school and its students. We will be working alongside local students, getting to know them in the process and working together for a good cause.
