Belize, 2 weeks, January 2018

The program will enrich Student’s cultural and diverse perspectives in one of the three areas: early childhood education, sustainable and agriculture practices, or healthcare. Cultural exploration, service learning, and professional development will be a focus of each program.
 
Students select one focus:
Health

With a population of a little over 300,000, Belize strives to provide their citizens with health services with limited finances. There is a growing need for quality health services, such as nursing, dental care and physical therapy. Students will explore Belize’s healthcare services and educate Belizeans in the area of healthcare.  Also, students will learn about natural healing and herbal medicine used in Belize.
 
Early Childhood Education and Foundations of Teacher Education
The program will enrich cultural and diverse perspectives of Belize’s early childhood educational system, including family involvement. Students will be directly engaged with one of The Ministry of Educations preschool programs and two Belize colleges.
 
Energy Management, Landscape Horticulture, Solar Energy Technology, and Sustainable Food Agriculture Systems 
For centuries, Belizean communities have been practicing sustainability. Much of the country’s electricity is provided by renewables including hydroelectric dams and sugar bagasse bioenergy.  Students will experience farming and energy practices used in rural villages, study the impact of global warming on the coral reef, and explore a Mayan herbal and medicine garden.
