A warm welcome to our friends at Collegiate!

It’s exciting to introduce you all to the Collegiate School and Where There Be Dragons Yak Board for “Nicaragua: Relaciones de Solidaridad.”

It may seem like the spring semester just began, yet summer is fast-approaching! In just a few months you’ll trade the Richmond for the stunning scenery of Laguna de Apoyo. Soon you’ll find yourself bouncing back and forth between time and place as you learn about the rich cultural and environmental diversity of Nicaragua's diverse landscapes and experience the ever-present tension between development and tradition. You’ll spend days and nights with home-stay families who will take you in as their own upon meeting you; you'll engage in issues of social justice with passionate community leaders and influencers; you’ll bounce between vastly different rhythms of life and interwoven stories of ethnically diverse peoples. And alongside you, you’ll find that this Yak board will be a powerful forum that weaves together a vibrant narrative of the collective journey you’ll be on with your Collegiate-Dragons community from the pre-course days, well into the field, and even after.

We are thrilled to be a part of your experience in Nicaragua. To make it real, the first thing we are asking of you is an introduction. You may be well-acquainted with your peers on this course, but you may not know their expectations, excitement, goals, curiosities, and fears of your classmates, instructors, and teachers. This forum will provide the space and support to share these things. And, you’ll be amazed looking back at the end of the course and witness the ways you’ve grown and changed in just a couple of weeks!

We are overjoyed to follow along with your adventure.

Love,

Dragons Administration Team
