Education Tour Fundraiser

The past 4 years I've taught at a low income high school in Philadelphia. What I realized in my 4 years teaching is that many students and their families are unable to travel outside of the country due to financial struggles. I'm reaching out to the community, friends, and family to help sponsor some of our students that are having trouble putting together the money for this trip. 

Through EF Tours we've set up an educational trip to Costa Rica where students will get a chance to leave the country and fully immerse themselves in a new culture. Students will have the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica for 8 days where they'll get the chance to visit a coffee plantation, visit waterfalls, observe the diverse ecosystems that make up Manuel Antonio National Park, and so much more! At the end they'll be receiving college credit for completing follow up assignments and a project based on their experience in Costa Rica. 

These students are AMAZING young adults that have worked so hard in high school and I wish to help them fundraise so that they can be part of this unique experience. Our goal is to help financially struggling students pay off the remaining balance of their trip before our deadline at the end of June!

We thank you SO much for all your help and support!!
