About

As a participant on an IPSL Colombia program, you can learn and serve in the beautiful and bio-diverse coffee growing region of Chinchiná. In Chinchiná, be prepared for a lush experience! This UNESCO Heritage city is nestled in a high Andean valley and is surrounded by by coffee plantations ("fincas") all of which you will have opportunities to explore.

Dive into Spanish language learning while serving in hospitals, group homes for girls and young women for houseless seniors and more. Take academic courses to learn more about the history and culture of this beautiful country. Some courses are excursion based and will take you to Cartagena and/or Medellin. Even if you don't take courses, IPSL can organize trips to either city should you wish to include them in your experience.
