Youth Delegations

Travel with us to Nicaragua to visit our partners on the ground and see the projects we support. These people-to-people cultural and educational exchanges strengthen a 30-year partnership that brings together people with a mutual commitment to improving livelihoods. 

Each delegation focuses on one or more areas of our program, allowing delegates the opportunity to be a part of the work that they are most interested in. Past delegations have enabled travelers to:

  • Enjoy Nicaraguan culture and its beautiful people
  • Get dirty helping to build libraries and organic gardens alongside Nicaraguan volunteers
  • Discuss human rights with local communities, government officials, and international agencies
  • Visit our lending libraries to read and play with children, and see community volunteerism at its best
  • Learn about constraints to health and education in low resource communities
  • Gain a better understanding of urban/rural social challenges in the developing world

While there, delegates also have the opportunity to see the beauty of Nicaragua by touring colonial towns, hiking a volcano or visiting one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
