The 19/20 Global Gap Year, a wonderful group of 10 students, embarked on September 15th to begin their 7 month journey! They have just completed their first 2 weeks of orientation in San Juan, Guatemala. During orientation the group attended Spanish lessons hosted by a local language school. In the afternoons, Program Leaders lead seminars discussing health and safety, rules and processes, and curriculum and program expectations. For fun, we did plenty of team-building activities, game nights, and spent some time exploring San Juan and a nearby town, San Marcos. Next stop: Tecpan, Guatemala to begin living with their host families!
