Info. Sessions: Service Learning Program in Guatemala

LIM College students are invited to join LIM College and Mercado Global from January 6 – 13, 2018 for a unique service learning opportunity in Guatemala.

Mercado Global is a nonprofit organization that provides education, tools, and access to international markets so that women can build their own businesses and invest in their local communities. Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

During the program in Guatemala, participants will learn how local women interact with the global fashion market, explore the culture of Guatemala through tours and visits, meet with indigenous artisans, and be equipped to become an ambassador of change.
