Nearly a dozen Jefferson Academy students plan to travel for spring break to Ecuador for a nine-day trip of cultural immersion and community service in late March. They will study the rich history and culture of Ecuador, as well as work side-by-side with members of an indigenous tribe on a development project. Students are seeking last minute donations at www.gofundme.com/jeffgoestoecuador to raise $15,000 and make this exciting trip possible.
