Description

Participants who travel to Cusco, Peru, with Bright Light Volunteers will participate in several service initiatives. Teaching English, offering dental hygiene clinics, and improving infrastructure are just a few examples.

This global service-learning experience will provide participants with a new perspective on the obstacles preventing growth in rural communities. In turn, it allows them to practice implementing solutions to assist in overcoming these challenges.

Our programs adhere to global service-learning best practices, which combine community service with both experiential learning in the field and online coursework through our university partner.

Our vision is to make the world a brighter place by creating a more peaceful, just, interconnected world where global challenges and opportunities are met by educated, compassionate global citizens and leaders.

Qualifications:
Volunteers must have a group of 10-20. We specialize in school travel studies but are open to adult groups as well. Through our University partner, Bethel University, we offer a dual-enrollment 3-credit hour course prior to departure.
