¡Primeros días!

Hola amigues y familia,

Hello friends and family,

The program has officially started, after a long flight + drive yesterday, we arrived in a beautiful family owned Ecolodge located in the middle of the cloud forest in Coban, Alta Verapaz.  We have been welcomed with hospitality and incredible Guatemalan food (fresh tortillas), oh yessss!

It is very special to finally get to be together as a group, all 13 of us. We have started the program with some orientation activities, first learning – sharing about some safety and important notes on health, and moving on to activities focused in forming a positive and inclusive group dynamic, of course this includes getting to know each other.

We are super excited for the journey we have ahead of us.

Okay that’s all for now. Stay tuned for some students Yaks in the next few days.


Itzá, Teto & Jesse A.k.a. the I-team!
