COVID-19 Travel Update:
Unfortunately, we will not be resuming our Student Service Program this Summer in Guatemala. This difficult decision was made in conjunction with our Board of Directions, and by assessing many factors surrounding international travel requirements, health and safety, and potential exposure for rural communities.
A key indicator incorporated in our policies and procedures since 2014 is the State Department Travel Advisory. As of recently, due to increasing COVID cases and variants, 80% of countries are now listed as a Level 4 Warning: Do Not Travel. All countries in Central America are now included in this warning.
We hope to announce our international service plans and 2022 travel dates over the next several months, and begin the preparation process with students this Fall!

Hear From Our World Changers!
“You're impacting someone else's life. You might not think of it, but they're also kind of impacting yours. It's an experience that stays with you for a really long time”
- Teni, 3-time returner, Newton Country Day School
One of the biggest takeaways I got from this trip was that you do not need material items to be happy when you are surrounded by people who you love and who love you. When you are with the people that you love, all you need is the right mindset and to be grateful and appreciative of what you have.
Grace, Winchester High School, February 2019
Going on this trip has allowed me to really appreciate everything I have. When I return I am going to give my mother a giant hug, because in this community they value family more than anything, so from now on that's what I will do too.

Student Leadership Program
DISCOVER YOUR POTENTIAL
Our Student Leadership Program is designed for World Changers looking to get more involved with our work. Many students return from their trips eager to spread the word about School the World!
Personally, being a trip leader was one of the best parts of the week. Not only did I get to help with more things than I had last year, but I also felt as if I had a greater influence on the overall group. I was able to show people proper technique for some of the work, and I really liked inspiring others with what I had to say in the nightly discussions.

Family Service Trip
GIVE YOUR FAMILY AN ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME!
Bring your family to Guatemala or Panama and in one week give your children, nieces/nephews or grandkids a greater appreciation for travel & for helping others, all while making unforgettable memories!
I was incredibly fortunate to travel with my nieces Annabel and Elle to finish a school in Guatemala. Working along side them and watching as they experienced the joy of working to improve the lives of children was an experience I’ll always cherish. Thanks to School the World for providing all three of us with this wonderful opportunity to make a difference, and to do it together as a family!
