Professional Development in Nicaragua

The year-round surf, warm tropical climate and active volcanoes make Nicaragua an increasingly popular tourist destination. Through our programs, we collaborate with local entrepreneurs to ensure that economic growth via tourism is structured responsibly and sustainably. Other aspects of our work in Nicaragua include:

· Educational projects in local community centers

· Business skills training for local farmers

· Social community development opportunities

During your Program, you will participate in workshops designed to sharpen your personal and professional leadership skills.

The skills and strategies from our workshops are immediately applied to real projects working with local Nicaraguans.

It is truly rewarding to see the immediate and positive impact our programs have on the community.

In Nicaragua, we have an opportunity to ensure tourism-fueled growth in the local communities is structured responsibly and sustainably, supporting local education and local economy.
