For the first year in its history, Achievement First Amistad High School will be hosting a study abroad trip to Costa Rica in April 2017.
There, we will zipline through the rainforest, take a cooking class, horseback ride, snorkel, visit a local school, and learn about the coffee plantations.
For many of my students, this will be their first time applying for their passports and traveling internationally. My scholars will be able to practice their Spanish and open their minds to different perspectives and ways of living. It is an incredibly invaluable experience that will enrich the lives of my scholars for years to come.
The fundraising will serve to provide transportation for our group to travel easily to and from their airport as well as to subset the overall price of the trip for my students.
