  • Bolivia Trip

    Posted July 28, 2014

    Solebury School is excited to announce their partnership with Where There Be Dragons to offer a trip to Bolivia from June 8 - 21, 2015. An experiential cultural immersion program focusing on indigenous culture, relations to land, and conservation efforts in Bolivia, this course features home-stays in rural communities learning about traditional knowledge and agricultural practices and sustainable resource management through collaborative work with local communities. Students will travel to Cochabamba, Copacabana, and Lake Titicaca, as well as visit an organic farm, practice basic Spanish language skills, work with a local youth-led social arts organization, and gain a deeper understanding of Andean culture. This program is ideal for students who wish to dive into complex issues facing our globally interconnected world and who are captivated by diverse cultures and landscapes. Students are not required to arrive with Spanish language skills, though we expect that students will fully engage in the language lessons and be willing to interact with locals as much as possible.

    Where There Be Dragons has been a leader in cross-cultural education for over twenty years, operating authentic cultural exchange in Bolivia since 2005 and a semester program there since 2007. The Solebury School trip to Bolivia will be led by two Where There Be Dragons field instructors along with two Solebury faculty members.

    The estimated cost for this program is $2,790. Preference may be given to students aged 16 and older with knowledge of the Spanish language, though all students in grades 9-12 are encouraged to apply. Please contact Nicole Mount, Director of Global Education Programs, if you would like an application, have questions, or would like additional information.

    Applications are due on Monday, December 1.
