Nicaragua trip planned for alumni, staff, community
Posted: February 09, 2006
LEWISBURG, Pa. - A Bucknell Brigade trip to Nicaragua for Bucknell alumni, employees, and community members is planned for May 12-20.
The trip's cost is expected to be between $800 and $1,000, depending on the final cost of airfare, said Janice Butler, director of service learning at Bucknell.
"We recognize that not all faculty or staff can travel with the Bucknell Brigade to Nicaragua during the service-learning trips designed for students in January and March," said Butler. "This is not officially a university-sponsored trip, but we will be staying with the same host agency, Jubilee House Community on the outskirts of the capital city of Managua."
The group will work in the resettlement community of Nueva Vida, where the Bucknell Brigade has been an active participant since Hurricane Mitch devastated the region in 1998.
"If you are interested in participating in this trip, to serve those less fortunate and learn about the culture, history, politics, and needs of one of the hemisphere's poorest countries, contact me," said Butler.
