The International Community Engaged Learning Program encompasses five service projects to be completed in Chiclayo, Peru. Every donation helps fund this project. Thank you! More ...

Dear Friends and Family,

As you may or may not know, I will be doing quite a bit of traveling this summer. I will be studying abroad for two weeks in Italy, France, and England in May and will be attending the ScholarCon leadership conference for The National Society of Collegiate Scholars in July. The most prolific of my summer travels, however, will be a three-week community service trip to Chiclayo, Peru.

Sponsored through the Center for Community Engaged Learning at Weber State University, I will be participating in the International Community Engaged Learning program in Chiclayo, Peru from June 16 to July 14, 2014. This three-week, service-oriented trip will comprise of five main projects:

  1. Cleaning, repairing and installing new playground equipment in an impoverished neighborhood.  
  2. Adding to a continued project of our partnering University, Juan Mejia Baca University, to construct a storefront to help teach women business skills that will assist them in creating their own personal businesses.  
  3. Laying a cement floor for a community day care facility.
  4. Installing a potable water line for a community that currently has their water brought in by truck twice per week. 
  5. Installing an English library at an elementary school and painting their courtyard with a mural.

This program affords me the opportunity to volunteer in an impoverished community in need of our services. While there, I will have the privilege to see first-hand how the work we do at the CCEL impacts communities all around the world. Furthermore, as an aspiring clinical psychologist, it will grant me the opportunity to witness the cultural, environmental, and socioeconomic factors that contribute to mental illness and cognitive processes in general.

In order to defray costs for this trip, I am conducting a fundraiser via PayPal. This seems to be the easiest way to raise funds for this opportunity. If you would like to facilitate this trip for me, click the button on the right side of this page. Any amount helps in making this opportunity a reality.

I thank you in advance for your generosity. If you have any questions about the program or my plans, I invite you to contact me.
