Photo of the Week-Teguce, Honduras

Would you consider volunteering abroad? Volunteering while traveling is an incredibly humbling and eye opening experience. Volunteering in Honduras allowed me to completely immerse myself in the culture, get to know the local people, and to give back.

  1. By Teguce do you mean Tegucigalpa? How interesting- I actually volunteered on the Cayos Cochinos islands a couple of years ago. I didn’t go to Tegucigalpa, but I did visit La Ceiba, Copan (and a nearby town whose name escapes me) and, of course, I passed through San Pedro Sula.

      • Wow, sounds like an amazing opportunity–especially one connected to an undergrad degree. I think real world experience is the most important aspect to learning. I actually went with my Teaching Education degree class as a grad class trip; we decided to do a volunteer project!
