Our 2nd annual surf-focused service retreat at Magnific Rock Popoyo! Venture off your surfboard and immerse yourself in Nicaraguan culture. The surf-focused service trips offer a refreshing twist to the typical Hope Corps schedule. Volunteers spend half of the week learning to surf one of Nicaragua's most friendly breaks and the other half of the week working hand-in-hand with the community to renovate a local primary school and create space for a music room. Surf the waves and make a lasting impact. Surf & Serve.
The Tongan village of 'Utungake suffers an extremely high rate of unemployment, especially amongst women, because there is no convenient option for early childcare. As a Hope Corps volunteer, you will help build a functioning preschool in the community that will provide access to education for young children and will employ local women as teachers and caretakers.
Location: Village of 'Utungake on the island of Vava'u, Kingdom of Tonga
