LEAF International Cultural Expeditions
Guatemala | Jan 30 – Feb 4, 2018
Haiti | July 2018
Costa Rica | November 1-9, 2017
LEAFers—We invite you to join us on a journey that will allow you to immerse yourself into the heart of LEAF International and its mission. This opportunity will take you and your involvement with LEAF to new heights through cross-‐cultural experiences in Costa Rica, Haiti, and Guatemala.
LEAF International Culture Keepers and youth feel that it’s important for LEAFers to visit the sites where programs are thriving, but most importantly, where indigenous cultures are illuminated through the art of their heritage. From the words of one of our Ngäbe First Nation Culture Keepers, Alexis Rodriguez, “The Institution is not just a school, and it’s not just a building. You have people in the place to run it – visionary people.”
Come learn about the cultures, preservation methods, and musical traditions of the First Nations of Costa Rica, the deep roots of heritage in Haiti, and the cultivation of art in Guatemala. See how LEAF International is contributing to the vivacity of these traditions by supporting cultural knowledge transfer to the next generations. Supporting you on your journey will be a LEAF staff member, LEAF Teaching Artists and LEAF International partners.These trips are family-friendly, so bring your kids! Give them an opportunity to see the world as global citizens.
