For the last two summers Washburn high school had completed two service trips with the organization, Free the Children.
The Ecuador group will meet regularly to prepare, fundraise, and discuss social justice topics prior to the trip.
A $250.00 non-refundable deposit is due by the end of September. Enrollment is open to all HS students!

The 2014 Kenya and the 2015 Ecuador service trips were unforgettable and inspired students to start the first service learning course at Washburn last year. I am looking forward to more amazing experiences and accomplishments with the 2016 Ecuador service trip
