This trip isn't really a "club starting" activity but more like a "family building" one while learning about a completely different culture. Our objective is to learn & experience first hand the vibrant life of Brazil and at the same time form strong bonds between students and teachers through educating each other outside the classroom. For all 30 of us (25 students, 5 teachers/administrators) we need to raise up to $10,000. This is a very important to our school, International Studies Academy, because for years we have taken a special group of student to another country to absorb world culture. For the past few years, we have not been able to do so due to insufficient funds, and this is our opportune moment to rekindle that tradition.
