2014 International Service Experience - Jinotega, Nicaragua - May 17-31

The application process has ended.
Check back after the trip for highlights. 
The Office of Community Outreach extends its service globally through the International Service Experience (ISE). An extension of the Alternative Break Program, ISE trips offer students an intense service experience. In recent years, we have maintained our partnership with the country of Lesotho in southern Africa. Trips were offered in 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011. We’ve also maintained our partnership with Outreach 360 and offered trips to the Dominican Republic in 2008 and 2013.

The next ISE trip will be offered in May 2014 and will focus on education and literacy issues in Jinotega, Nicaragua through Outreach 360.

What is Alternative Break?
Alternative Break is an intense service experience during one of BW's breaks. It is an opportunity to serve with fellow BW students, make new friends, make a difference, and travel to another part of the country and even the world. The focus on Alternative Break trips is direct service, reflection and education.
