Maroon Edition: Global Village Experience

Join us for a weekend-long adventure at the Global Village within the Heifer Project Ranch in Perry County, Arkansas! The Heifer Project is an international aid organization, providing agricultural and educational resources to impoverished communities around the world. In connection with the Maroon Edition and the book Same Kind of Different as Me, we will visit the farm, meet the animals, and take part in the Global Village Experience where we will learn about the struggles of impoverished families both in the U.S. and around the world. We will be staying in developing world conditions, working together, and improving our understanding of global poverty. This trip is an excellent opportunity for students who want to improve their leadership skills, build their community service portfolio, or just spend a fun weekend on a beautiful farm.

More information about the dates and registration will be posted at a later date.
