community service /
field work course

About the Course:

     Students will learn about the history and politics of Bolivia and the current problems it now faces. We will particularly focus on the issues Bolivia is dealing with in the following areas: microfinance, environment, health, youth and education, women's empowerment, community development, and human rights.  The class will consist of discussions and group presentations. As a class, we will help to select a focus for our community service project and prepare for our trip to Bolivia, which is organized by the Foundation for Sustainable Development.

    The class will culminate in a two week long service learning trip to Cochabamba, Bolivia where students will live with a host family and participate in a short-term sustainable service project(s). The service trip will take place during winter break, beginning sometime the first week of January and lasting two weeks. (If you're taking the class you have to come on the service trip!) Knowing Spanish is not a requirement for the trip (although it is helpful).
