Looking for a summer internship or something to do over the summer related to sustainability?
This summer, Tufts students have the opportunity to travel to Boaca, Nicaragua and work alongside local students to develop school gardens and garden education programs. The trip is 10 days (May 24–June 2) and will focus on sustainable agriculture, immersion into Nicaraguan culture, and environmental activism. The trip fee is $2,489 (which covers everything you’ll need in Nicaragua, including airfare, food, lodging, and transportation), and we will have regular meetings to discuss fundraising ideas and opportunities. There are 20 spots available. The deadline to register is January 30th and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t hesitate if you’re interested!
