Spanish Immersion Trip to Colombia

August 13 - August 19

Free

Join us for an incredible seven-day, six-night Spanish immersion week in Medellin, Colombia. We’ve partnered with a couple of incredible non-profit organizations and will be volunteering in the comuna of Moravia. This neighborhood has undergone a remarkable transformation from a landfill to a thriving arts and cultural center, thanks to the efforts of the community leaders and non-profits we’ll work with. You’ll have the unique opportunity to work directly with them during our morning volunteering sessions, and in the afternoons, we have exciting sightseeing activities planned.

For those who crave even more adventure, we offer an additional two-night stay to visit Santa Fe de Antioquia. This small colonial town, founded in 1541, is one of Colombia’s elite Pueblo Patrimonios network, and it’s a must-see. Don’t miss the chance to explore its beautiful architecture, cobblestone streets, and brightly painted doors.
