At the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School (HIOBS), we offer several different semester expeditions that involve Central America.
My personal favorite is our Florida to Central America Service Leadership Semester.
So, why should a student choose to spend time in Guatemala over somewhere else in Central America? The Florida to Central America Service Leadership Semester is unlike any other Outward Bound long-form course in its merging of adventure, wilderness medicine certifications, and international community service.
Back at home, our maid has arrived and is washing dishes and cleaning up.
We share breakfast with our kids, then get clean using our 'suicide shower' (so named because of it's illogical combination of electricity and water), the only source of hot water in our house.
Once enrolled, you will have the chance to select the volunteer opportunity that's most interesting to you.
Volunteers will always receive their first preference.
