Spring break in Belize won’t be the same without you!Read More
So much learning disguised as FUN you won’t BELIZE IT! Reward yourself for getting through another semester! Our students in Belize are so happy about it they are DANCING!!!
We know you’ve been working hard. That’s why we want you to reward yourself with this once in a life time SPRING BREAK trip to Belize! Santa came to Ardenti and gave us $100.00 towards your deposit!
Just a few years ago I was sitting in a classroom at this time of year thinking, “Please Lord just let this be over. I just want to pass this exam and move on with my life.” I totally get it. College was all fun and games for me until the studying part started! Am I right? I know it seems rough now, but trust me, one of the GREATEST feelings I have ever had was finally walking on that stage and getting that HARD EARNED diploma! You can do this. I promise.
But, I would not be a good educator/mom/mentor if I didn’t tell you that when you put in the hard work you should always REWARD yourself! And what greater reward than taking yourself to a different country to see its beauty not only in the landscape but through its people. We want you to come immerse yourself in the culture of Belize for your spring break. And when I say immerse…….. well let me just show you a few snippets of our fall trip……
Imagine giving yourself this gift for Christmas as a JOB WELL DONE for hanging in there through fall semester and giving it your all! And Santa and Ardenti have teamed up to give you guys an “attaboy” as well! We are giving you $100.00 off of your deposit (we want you to use that on buying Christmas gifts!) All you have to do is apply here and you are on your way to an AMAZING Spring Break unlike any other spring break you have had before! Be sure to use PROMO CODE CHRISTMASGIFT in the “coupon seen online” space and you will get $100.00 off of your deposit. C’mon……. you know you want to do this!
There’s just one thing left…….. the kids we work with in Belize wanted to tell you something….
ACT FAST! SPACES ARE FILLING! Use Promo Code CHRISTMAS GIFT to get your Christmas Gift of $100.00 off of your deposit!

Ardenti Global Service learning will be taking two trips this fall, and you do not want to miss out! There will be teams going to Belize from November 10th to the 20th and Austin, Texas from December 15th to the 22nd. The spots are filling quickly, so if you are interested, act fast!
While in Belize City the group will be working in the most impoverished district. The team will be running an after-school program for 6-12-year-old children to progress literacy. Ardenti has been working in this community for the past 2 years, and has taken several groups to work with these children. The Ministry of Education of Belize has fully supported the efforts of the organization, and has asked that teams continue to come and help students progress their literacy skills. Students will not only teach the children educational skills, but will also allow for them to learn team building games and integrate literacy into snack making and art projects! These children have seen more in their short lives than many of us have experienced throughout ours, and being able to give them the opportunity to get away from the trials that they face on a daily basis and have some fun is priceless. The children are so excited for our group to arrive! Service Learners will also be experiencing Belize through excursions such as swimming with sea turtles, going on a jungle safari boat ride, visiting a Mayan temple, and swimming in crystal clear waters. I will be going on this trip, and am so excited to experience all that it has to offer!
The Austin, Texas trip is going to be equally as amazing! While in Austin Ardenti service learners will be working in a tiny home community that has been established for the chronically homeless. Students will work with the residents of the tiny home community doing various team building projects. Through this tiny home community, the chronically homeless population in Austin has decreased by 80%! How incredible is that?!? Homeless individuals are not only given a roof over their heads, but are taught valuable skills that make them an asset to their community. While in Austin, service learners will also be visiting San Antonio to see the Alamo, going on a hot air balloon ride, and touring NASA. You do not want to miss it!!
If you are interested in going on one of these awesome trips, please do not hesitate to reach out for more information. We would love to have you join us in serving these communities! There are scholarships being offered for financial assistance, so do not let money be the only reason you chose not to go on a life-changing adventure with us! You can apply on our website by clicking the scholarship opportunities tab on our home page. The deadline to apply is September 30th. Don’t wait! Go ahead and apply today so that you can Go Passionately with us this fall!
My name is Brette Burgstiner, and I am a Human Services and Delivery Administration student at University of North Georgia, Gainesville campus. I am passionate about traveling, and believe that the most influential growth comes when we are bold enough to step outside of our comfort zones. That being said, it was an easy choice to go passionately with Ardenti Global Service Learning this fall. I will be going to Belize with a group of students from November 11th through the 20th. This trip is all about helping others and community development. We will be working with children in an after school care program. This after school care program provides the children with down time to forget all of the chaos that might be going on in their lives for a short while, and just be kids. We will also be cave tubing, zip lining, and swimming with sea turtles! This is my last semester of my undergraduate studies, and I do not think that there is any better way to wrap it up than going on an awesome trip to Belize!
I have been on several international adventures, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has even the slightest interest. There is nothing like immersing yourself in a different culture, humbling yourself, and working alongside locals to achieve a common goal. There is something to be said about those who are courageous enough to step outside of what is comfortable into the unknown, in hopes to lend a helping hand to those who do not have access to many of the daily necessities that we take for granted here in the United States. It is absolutely life changing. I can promise, from my own experiences, that your perception will change, your heart for people will change, and you will not be the same after a trip like the Belize trip being offered this fall. I chose to go on this trip because I am excited about what this organization is doing in Belize City, and I would regret missing out on being a part of it!
Looking forward to graduation in December, I am confident that this trip will be valuable in my future career. It will enable me to see people for who they are, not what they have. This trip will allow me to understand people in a new way, and how to communicate and help others most effectively. It will allow me to gain perspective, and that is priceless. I think that these are things that would be useful in any career. I have found that international service learning trips are intended to help change and improve the lives of those that you are going to serve, but YOU end up being the one who is changed. It is truly an experience that I believe every person should have!
So, be courageous and bold. Be willing to step out of your comfort zone! I promise that you will not regret it. Join our team to Belize and Go Passionately.
Not sure if Belize is right for you? We've got trips to Austin Texas, Cherokee Nation, and Petersfield Jamaica as well!!
