International Service Trip to Cambodia (optional and earned)
August 1, 2018 - August 26, 2018
Ten Dragonfly students will be embarking on a very special journey to Cambodia. Dragonfly invites students who have demonstrated their engagement in the program and that we feel comfortable traveling with internationally. The trip is staffed with a Dragonfly therapist and two experienced mentors.
Each year students have returned having had a profound experience. The trip combines service work, international travel, and cultural immersion. Among the experiences, students volunteer at an elephant refuge, teach English to Cambodian children, and visit World Heritage Site Angkor Wat. Our students often find a greater appreciation and perspective regarding all the opportunities and resources granted them in the United States. They witness true poverty and true happiness hand in hand as they experience Cambodian culture. This can evoke greater compassion and insight, and for some propels the healing process. Our goals is to instill a sense of global community and the value of others.
