his program will explore topics related to the conservation of this critical natural resource.
A second theme of the program is related to social action. Students engage with Native American, African-American, and Latino community groups while learning about specific challenges faced by these communities. Participants have an opportunity to engage with peers, participate in sports activities, learn about their lives, and how community-based organizations are helping to make a difference.
The third component of the program is fun & music and includes joining SummerFest, the largest music festival in the world! It also includes time at the beach, and so much more.
The fourth component is the host family and the 4th of July celebration. Students will stay with host families to participate in the festivities – parades and fireworks – and to learn about US home life. The host family stay is 5 days of the program, with the remaining time spent in a university dorm.
