Jessica A Whitfill, Summer 2016 Participant
Having some exposure to Spanish would definitely make you feel more comfortable in most environments. I would also say future students should take care of themselves before they leave for the trip. I started out a bit sick, and it was hard to get back to feeling well, especially when we arrived in Cusco, at a fairly high elevation. The best advice I can give would be to relax, go with the flow, and remain flexible, a lot can happen with all of the traveling, but staying organized and calm will only help the process along.

Summer 2018 Participant
Visiting CASP was the most rewarding part of the trip, getting to learn firsthand how the students with different abilities are taught in Peru.

Summer 2018 Participant
Throughout this program I learned a lot about different teaching strategies for individuals with a different range of abilities. The staff at CASP strives to involve the family in the education process and teach their students practical life skills that will prepare them to be independent members in society and contribute to their families and live lives of their own.
