Como se dice trip?
This will be the fourth consecutive year that Lyndon State students will be traveling to Guatemala. This service trip offers a number of exclusive opportunities that are not only life changing, but also rewarding. 
From sight seeing to community service, this trip gives students the chance to travel to another country and learn about a new culture. The service trip is a rare experience that allows students to reach out to another country, help others, and also learn things about themselves. 
Not only do students develop new friendships among one another, but they also meet new people in Guatemala; people that they will remember forever. 
In previous years, the students have done a number of community projects on their visit to Guatemala. One year, students helped build and renovate a school. On top of that, they got the opportunity to work and interact with the children there. This rare experience was not only enjoyable for Lyndon State students, but it also had a great impact on the children of Guatemala.
Last year, the students were involved in a number of projects. They helped assist in painting a church, helped build houses, and worked together to create a co-op where locals of the area could share crops and livestock they helped raise. They also got to work with children in the village. 
Service projects are life changing. There is nothing better than the feeling of reaching out to others and this service trip not only gives you that opportunity, but also allows you to travel to another country and learn about a new culture. For many people, this is a once in a lifetime experience, so why not take that chance when you can? 
This year, the trip will be taking place over February break. It is about $1,200 (give or take). Applications are being accepted until October 13th. Only ten people will be going on the trip, including chaperons, due to travel purposes once in Guatemala. If you have any interest or questions, feel free to contact Erin Rossetti at
