For the seventh time, we are pleased to offer this exciting learning opportunity in the Philippines. This Global Service Learning trip will provide students with heartwarming experiences centered around a tutoring center in a small village called Nanka. Here, students can see how people help each other to cope with extreme poverty. Students will also visit social service agencies and mission organizations that deal with the issues of human trafficking, child welfare, poverty, substance abuse, or crime. Before returning to New York, we will stay overnight in Hong Kong, a cosmopolitan center where East meets West.
