I am seeking sponsorship for 12 remarkable students who will travel to Costa Rica for an all-inclusive, week long cultural immersion trip April of 2017. Our overall goal is to fundraise $14,400, which will cover about 50 percent of the trip’s collective cost.
The students selected should be rewarded for their tenacity, hard work and desire to learn. While I know study abroad at the middle school level is rare, I want to normalize these types of experiences because they are truly rewarding and life changing. A trip abroad would accelerate their Spanish language skills and interpersonal skills by immersing them in a Spanish speaking culture. I want to help shape my student’s narratives and expand their sense of self. I envision 7 days of self-discovery where students will authentically engage in new experiences that will manifest into a renewed sense of confidence and intellectual curiosity.
To prepare for this experience, students will meet throughout the year to learn important background information related to Costa Rica’s sustainability efforts, rich culture and biodiversity.
$120 will cover the application fee for a Passport Book & Card.
$155 will cover the costs of EF’s Global Travel Protection so that families can send their students abroad with peace of mind.
Any amount will cover the costs of the required monthly payments, which will bring them one payment closer to actualizing their trip abroad!
Scholars will be forever grateful that you chose to invest in their endeavor to study abroad.
