Mission Driven: Building a school in El Sauce, Nicaragua

 

Since 2006, Geneseo students have made a difference volunteering and studying in El Sauce, living with families as they gain new perspective helping with community development initiatives as part of the college’s growing service-learning program.

Most recently, students, alumni, staff and supporters of the unique partnership united to help families in nearby Las Minitas realize a dream — to open the first-ever school in their community. Jeanine Stewart Lupisella '87/ MS '89 and her family spent a month living with local families and helping to construct the school, with Kellan Morgan '06 and Scene editor Kris Dreessen.
