Belize Adventure 2014

Community Garden

For the past 10 days, myself and Dr. Anthony Songer, have led the group of students in our Global Citizenship and Social Responsibility Class on a service learning trip in Belize.

We are an interdisciplinary group that includes students who are from a variety of undergraduate programs.  This year these include; engineering majors, nursing majors, psychology, education etc. etc.

The theme of of our community service work is “Healthy Lifestyles”.  My student Michelle (nursing major), did an excellent job of “connecting the dots” so to speak, or explaining why our projects and interdisciplinary teaming is important in Belize.

Read all about our adventure this year, and the importance of teaching children to grow their own vegetables here.  Connecting the Dots by Michelle McCowin

I teach a class called Global Citizenship & Social Responsibility.  It’s about expanding your view of the world by working to make a difference in it.  Last year we took a garden from this…..

Garden Beds

Students worked hard, in 100 degree heat and humidity to build relationships and a place to grow healthy foods.  Local students assisted.

We told the story on this website.  http://belizecmtrip2013.blogspot.com/

If you’d like to support student trips this year, or supplies for our trip, please click here.  Your kindness will be greatly appreciated.

You can specify if you would like donations to assist supporting student travel, or supplies for projects and projects are listed on the website.  This is not a charitable organization – but if you would like to donate and have your donation go to a charitable organization that supports our work please contact via links in the attached pages.  I’m not a professional fund-raiser, just listening to many students ask how to lower costs of the $2700.00 course fee that covers their travel and project costs.
