This program allows students to engage in service abroad! You will complete service projects in Iquitos, Peru and along the Amazon River toward the Brazil border. Learn about communications strategies in real-time as you work directly in the community of Palmeras, working directly with women entrepreneurs as they strive to make their local businesses more successful.

This team will meet with local community members to interview them about their businesses, communication strategies, and will work on potential deliverables that would improve their success. The team will work one on one with community members on other projects relating to community and leadership development, including a variety of cultural exchange activities in this rural part of Peru.
