Be apart of 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 with several LEAF International programs including Guatemala, Haiti, Costa Rica and more!
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.
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 our LEAF International Costa Rican coordinator, Luis Porras Mora, “Our culture is connecting people from far away distances, but we are also connecting human beings in time. This connects us not only with people that live in Costa Rica, but with people that lived before us and those that are going to be here after us…..enjoying the spirit of being.”
Supporting you on your journey will be a LEAF staff member, LEAF Culture Keepers and LEAF International partners. These trips are family-friendly, so bring your kids & their friends! Give them an opportunity to see the world as global citizens.
“I saw people listening to each other and I saw people being heard. So much love, care, and kindness was being exchanged. I experienced love, family, cohesiveness, attention to detail, and attention to what really matters in the world.” –LEAF International Cultural Expeditioner
