Sullivan House High School, an alternative school on the far South Side of Chicago, enrolls at-risk youth who have dropped out of other public high schools. In addition to providing these young people with an education from certified instructors, Sullivan House provides them with afterschool literacy programs, job training, postsecondary planning, community-based programs, and several other opportunities.
Working with the Education Tour Company, Sullivan House aims to create a travel-abroad program to give students an opportunity to travel, to further their educations, and to broaden their understanding of the world through social and cultural interaction. The first teach-and-travel trip will take 10 students to Barcelona, Spain, in April 2012. Sullivan House will select students based on academic achievement, attendance, and other factors and take them on a seven-day immersion journey through the city to explore its culture, history, and language. This trip corresponds with classroom lessons on Spain, as well as the history and cultural influences of Barcelona.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help youth participate in a study-abroad program. If G-Team members raise $360, then Sullivan House Alternative High School can fund one day of a Barcelona teach-and-travel trip for one student. Each additional $360 raised will fund another day of the trip for one student.
