About

Live and work with an indigenous Guatemalan family in the Lake Atitlán area of the Western Highlands. Learn how to design, carry out, and write-up your own independent research project in one of the 15 traditional Maya communities on the shores of a lake formed by ancient volcanoes! Students from all majors are encouraged to apply, especially those interested in topics concerning the environment, globalization, health, social justice, tourism, conservation, language, development, poverty, and civil
engineering. Service learning opportunities are also possible.

Guided by the program leaders, students work closely on their projects with local Maya to understand the key issues arising from globalization and change in Guatemala.
