Cultural Embrace by API is happy to announce our 2013 Group Service Trips!

Interested participants can choose from a diverse set of options, including:

  • 1-week or 2-week group service group trips to Guatemala in January, spring break, and over the summer (multiple date options)
  • A 2-week summer group service trip to South Africa (June 9 – July 3, 2013)
  • A 2- week summer group service trip to Thailand (June 7 – 21, 2013)
