Our transformative family trip to Nicaragua is part of our year-long Transformative Travel Connections (TTC) program, which includes pre and post-travel workshops connecting with Nicaraguan youth through visual storytelling, learning about the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, community development challenges and potential solutions in Nicaragua, and its history and culture.
Participants of TTC will stay with Nicaraguan youth and their families for 3 nights, building powerful bonds through shared experiences including work on a community service project. This immersive family trip includes outdoor adventures exploring Nicaragua’s volcanoes, beaches and lagoons, and visits to handicraft workshops and other cultural and historical sites.
