Belize Mission Trip – Pathlight
July 15 - July 30
Special Trip Notes: This year we are offering 2 one-week sessions, from July 15 to July 23 and July 22 to July 30. We invite you to join us for one week or both!
Education can impact every aspect of society– reducing poverty and crime, and providing solutions to many health and social issues.
This trip is for elementary through high school teachers and administrators willing to use their teaching expertise to encourage and equip educators in Belize, where 40% of the population is below the poverty line.
Since 2008, PathLight has provided teacher training in Belize. Participants partner with PathLight staff to design and present a Teacher Training Conference for Belizean school teachers. The conference offers the teachers a chance to learn valuable techniques that they can use to help improve student success and give students a chance at an education. God can use you to touch hearts and impact teachers and students in Belize!
