Each Sumer I provide an opportunity for a few teachers to travel and learn about our high school exchange to historic Granada, Nicaragua!

Our teacher chaperone fly's with our student group, aside from the flight - there is no recruitment or supervision of students! Once you arrive you enjoy your trip with our support!

There is a lot to see and experience, you may travel during your visit or stay with us in the community and enjoy our slow tropical pace! Granada is a colonial, walk-able city, known regionally for poetry and the arts!

We provide roundtrip flight and we include excursions, a spa visit, and one free dinner. We also connect you to our local network of

Women friends- teachers and community leaders! Things to do in Granada, learn Latin dance, get involved with our partner organization Casa de la Mujer-Granada, visit artists, go shopping,

Experience local music, attend a poetry reading, explore outdoor restaurants, visit our host high schools, and join our community service afternoons, (55 hours)

Explore a cloud-forest, relax on a tropical island, and go swimming in a blue lagoon! I'm have a number of students enrolled from your area, I'm also coordinating an all girls exchange with Castilleja School, Palo Alto CA
