These short term programs are focused on visiting several of our partner communities for a few days each. In this case, we do not work on grassroots development projects together with local counterparts; rather, the local participants lead our short stays by sharing their stories and fulfilling the roles of informal educators. Each community stay revolves around a particular theme that can be built into either a Home School Faculty-led experience or a Pachaysana-led experience. In most cases, we focus on the Amazon region or Quito and its surrounding areas; however, we also maintain partnerships in other parts of the country and can arrange for visits in the central highlands and coast.
