A “SOL work group” is a team of volunteers who travel together to Nicaragua to learn, share and serve in partnership with local communities. North American volunteers spend 6-9 days together, working alongside of Nicaraguans to share in the construction of a school, learning center, garden, or other educational project. The transformative work group experience is designed to promote solidarity and cross-cultural understanding between people of the global north and global south through hands-on community based projects, face to face meetings, and active participation in SOL’s programs, in order to better understand and reduce poverty and inequality in the world.
