Topics: Photos of the Week
Trimester 1 is over for our Blue cohort and our Green cohort is finishing up their time in Costa Rica.

As November wraps up so does our first trimester for our blue cohort. As of today our blue students are headed home for their break, when they return after the holidays they will be headed to Southeast Asia. Our green cohort is finishing up their independent studies in Monteverde and they will be headed home soon as well. Check out the photos below showing what our students have been up to in Costa Rica as they learn new skills like baking, up-cycling, public-speaking and much more!

Don’t forget that every Friday we will be putting together our favorite photos and travel highlights from the past week. Be sure to check out last week’s photos, if you missed them. We will be back again with more photos from the field next Friday!
