21 DAYS UNTIL WE DEPART FOR HONDURAS!
In just a few short weeks we will be on a plane, traveling to El Progreso, Honduras for one of the most exciting Spring Break trips we could ask for! Our group of UWO students, along with our awesome trip leader Missy Burgess, will be spending March 21-28th with an organization called OYE.
“OYE is a youth-led organization that develops the leadership and capacity of at-risk Honduran youth. OYE’s integrated development approach combines academic scholarships, youth capacity building, and community engagement to inspire and equip young people with the awareness and skills they need to take control of their own lives. The final goal is the empowerment of socially conscious youth who will emerge as leaders and agents of positive change in the Honduran community.”

We will be working with the organization and the youth that they serve, learning about more about the education systems in the country, and of course enjoying the warm weather!
My name is Ashlee Arendt, and I will be blogging this years ASB Honduras trip. Please stay tuned and follow us as we take this journey to help empower the Youth of Honduras!
