This Honduras Alternative Spring Break program exposes students to the challenges of  working in Honduras with a local population to achieve several goals. Students should have a strong desire to help others, learn to communicate creatively if they do not speak Spanish, be willing to work hard under sometimes difficult circumstances, and to learn from the experience.

What is the Honduras Alternative Spring Break?

At F&M, students are encouraged to contextualize and reflect on what they have learned each day in order to understand the effect of the work they are doing as well as the potential implications on their own lives.

The Honduras Alternative Spring Break is health-related and is for students who may be interested in medicine, public health, and service to others. Spanish not required.  C.A.R.E. (Central American Relief Effort) is our partner organization since 2009. It is  a faith-based organization headquartered in Lancaster, PA. It's mission is to mobilize volunteers and humanitarian aid in the United States to benefit populations in abject poverty in areas of Central America. C.A.R.E. provides all in-country trip support, security and translators.
