Semester in Central & South America
LEAPNOW proudly invites you to participate in a unique semester of cultural immersion, language study, service and adventure in Guatemala and Argentina, led by two long-time LEAPNOW staff members and group leaders, Sarita Rivard and Nicolás Butí.
Living cultural bridges, themselves, Sarita and Nicolás call their program Puente (Spanish for ‘bridge’) Pachamama (in honor of a mythical Earth Mother revered by indigenous people throughout the Andes).
Since Puente is based in Argentina, the program costs much less than comparable semester programs in Latin America, saving you from one to four thousand dollars per semester. Though deeply experiential in nature, Puente semesters offer optional college credit.
