A collection of photos from the 2014 Shoulder-to-Shoulder service learning trip to Ecuador. 13 Lasell students went on the trip with Professors Aaron Toffler and Jose Guzman as well as Gillian Stanley, who works in the Graduate Program. The group stayed at two haciendas, Pachamama and El Sinche with a group of hosts. While on the trip, the group learned about farming and nature, hiked mountains and volcanoes, visited cities and a university, and spent two days at a school where they interacted with children, fixed the water system, installed playground equipment, and created a soccer field. Applications for next year’s trip are available now and can be picked up at the Center for Community-Based Learning, located in Klingbeil House.
