Twenty students will be participating in the experience of a lifetime for nine days in June 2017.  They will be making the long journey to India to actively experience all that they have learned over the course of the two-year IB service and learning project focused on India.  As an educator and parent, I understand the long term impact that cultural immersion and hands on learning can have on the development of potential future leaders in our community.  That’s why I urge you to help these students make a difference.  We can only hope that these students will be inspired and inspire others by their experiences to make a difference at home and afar.

We are partnering with Education First tours because of their fifty years of experience dedicated to giving students real world learning platforms.  The itinerary for the nine day experience is listed below and we hope that you continue to check back and follow as our students continue to blog on this website about all of the happenings.  This website will serve as a living artifact of what IBMYP and service and learning can offer our youth.
