Students will stay at the Casa de Retiros, or Retreat Center, in Vinto, just outside Cochabamba.
Cochabamba is the third largest city in Bolivia. They will work at CEOLI, a community center helping low-income children with disabilities. They will be doing tutoring or helping with other projects around the center.
The group will have time to do some sightseeing as well as visit La Cancha, the largest open-air market in South America.

As no courses are required in conjunction with this program, financial aid is not available. The Office of Student Life will be assisting accepted applicants with fundraising opportunities.
