Putney Student Travel Community Service Programs

 

Overview

Participants in these service programs work within a group to assist individuals in developing countries and disadvantaged communities.

Programs operate in Ecuador, Tanzania, Costa Rica, Senegal, Nicaragua, Nusa Penida, the Dominican Republic, Vietnam, Argentina, Ghana, Peru, India, Dominica and Hawaii.
