Also, on February 12, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. in 199 Esslinger Hall, student alumni who went on the program in summer 2019 will give a presentation on their experiences and ongoing service-learning, supporting Guarayo and Monkox/Chiquitano Indigenous peoples in Bolivia through the new student organization they founded, Students for Indigenous Rights and Environmental Justice in Bolivia. Please consider volunteering with the group even if you don’t go to Bolivia. Opportunities are also available for internships with Indigenous and non-governmental organizations like World Wildlife Fund and CEJIS in Bolivia.
International Studies majors can fulfill their 10 week intercultural experience requirement by participating in the program and either interning with a Bolivian organization for several weeks after the program or by working remotely on community projects.
