Philippines, Southeast Asia
Cebu is one of the provinces of the Philippines. It is located to the east of Negros island; to the west of Leyte, and Bohol islands in an area known as the Visayas. It is located on both sides by the straits of Bohol (between Cebu, and Bohol), and Tañon (between Cebu, and Negros).
Students will travel to Cebu City as members of a multidisciplinary academic team. Participants will work with students in local schools on topics selected by local leaders. Topics in the past have centered around bullying, critical thinking, and water purification. A dental clinic is also set up for the benefit of local community.
The trip will include activities designed to expose students to local culture and history.
