Growing Change, The Hub & Lago Atitlan
Finally, we will arrive on the mystical and enchanting shores of Lago Atitlan where we will stay at Operation Groundswell’s Hub. The Hub is the physical embodiment of OG’s culture, philosophy, and mission. It is a place where solidarity is cultivated in and between people and local partners through conversations and collaborative projects. Here in San Juan, you’ll engage with the local Maya Tz’utujil community while learning how resistance can take on many forms, from confronting challenges with food security to preserving the local language & culture.
On our last day we’ll gather for disorientation – a staple of every OG program where we kick back and reflect, discuss lessons learned, assess our impact, and prepare for the journey home.
