"They have given me immense hope that my children can have a more comfortable and bigger space to live in." "I am so grateful."
These are a few encouraging quotes from our latest Aventura project! We are working in collaboration with an organization called SIFAIS.
Our main project is improving the living conditions for a single mom and her two kids! We are working on restoring and doing a lot of home improvements to their house, in addition to collaborating in their community center.
Aventuras are an opportunity for our students to dive into different people’s lifestyles as well as to see themselves as contributors by developing various projects throughout their program stay.

Watch this short video showing students reflect on the class and their memorable field trip experience:
The 9 Dimensions of Healthy Living framework stems from the robust research by the Gates Foundation on the "Dimensions of Young Adult Success".
After using this framework to guide and structure the personal growth and program experiences of our students for several years we thought, wouldn't this framework make for a really interesting and valuable college course?... So, we partnered up with Veritas University to offer a course called Sustainable Lifestyles, focused on young adult wellbeing and centered around the 9 Dimensions of Healthy Living.
In addition to providing students with lots of information on how to navigate their wellbeing, it has tons of experiential elements that make it really engaging.
