PSE works to ensure that your participation in one of our service projects helps to promote growth and development within the communities we serve.

Each project is designed and implemented to ensure its continuity, creating a foundation for others to build upon. PSE’s long-term collaboration with each community enables us to meet their needs in a sustainable and continuous manner. Through cultural immersion, participants are provided with the opportunity to understand the daily realties of Nicaraguan life. This way PSE participants are not only able to make a difference in the lives of others, but they will also build long-lasting relationships with community members. Expeditions are carried out year-round, generally lasting one to two weeks, with flexibility regarding trip duration and group type. We welcome both established groups and those wishing to participate individually.
