AED Honduras Volunteer Spring Break Trip Information
Where: La Ceiba, Honduras
When: March 6-16
Who can go?: ALL ASU students
Cost: $800.00 (see details)
Deposit: $200 (see details below)
Each year, AED runs a spring break trip. This year, the trip is through Volunteering Solutions, an international volunteering group that sends people of all ages all over the globe for volunteer work. We’re doing a version of their standard Honduras break trip, modified especially for pre-health students. These spring break trips are an excellent resume-booster, a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience, and a great way to get to know your fellow pre-health students.
What you’ll be doing:
This depends entirely on your previous levels of experience and certification. If you’re brand-new, and have never done anything clinically related, then you’ll be shadowing doctors during their clinical duties, helping out with things like writing charts, taking vital signs, and working with children and the elderly. People with phlebotomy certification may be asked to draw blood or administer vaccines, while those with higher certification (EMS, CNA, etc.) may be much more involved. The trip also includes in the price a trip Tour to Cayos Cochinos Islands and Canopy Zip line and Hot Springs tour
The price includes:
· Airport Receive/Transfer
· Accommodations in a group local host family
· Three cooked meals a day
· 24 hour in country support with local Volunteer Solution staff
· job-specific Spanish refresher lessons
· Tour to Cayos Cochinos Islands, Canopy Zip line and Hot Springs tour
The price does not include Airfare to and from San Pedro Sula, entry Visa, departure taxes, vaccinations, local transportation, travel & health insurance as well as gifts and souvenirs.
If 10 or more people go on the trip, then we get the option of humanitarian airfare. That would be a series of cheap, coordinated flights where everyone would be together. If we have less than 10 people go, then everyone would need to coordinate their own flights, which tend to run between $475-800.
The deposits can be turned into Madison at anytime. Please arrange with her a time to meet to turn in your deposit (email and phone number below). Deposits can be turned in any time, but are due no later than December 10, 2013.
The minimum number of students on the trip is 5, although the ideal number would be 10-15 people. While there are no requirements to go on the trip, conversational Spanish skills are recommended. We would need to have either one skilled/fluent Spanish speaker per 5 people in the group, or several people who are minimally conversational per 5 people. There are no GPA requirements, interview processes, or restrictions for going on the trip. If you have any other questions, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 253-905-2379.

The only way I will be able to follow my dream and have this amazing opportunity if by getting help from amazing people like you. Help me out by spreading this word and donating. Every little donation means the world to me. Thank you very much.
