Plans to Peru
I am looking forward to sharing my family trip to introduce my son Brian and his fiancee Julia to their Peruvian Family. I will also share my research for a possible Global Education project for my students at Casady School: Entrepreneurial Arts Empowered Service-Learning in the region of Ollantaytambo Peru. Casady Challenge 20/20 students have worked with a school in the area. The school had a Walk the World Ollantaytambo'2005. The school received in 2006 a YAC copy of the book High Noon, 20 Global Problems and 20 Years to solve them. We sent a PP of our understanding of the book but they did not send their understanding. It will be nice to meet the director of the program and see the possibilities for an exploratory trip next June 2008.
The goal of this "fact finding site visit" is to research the possibilities of service work that will teach the Cyclones about arts in the Ollantaytambo area of Peru and work with a partner school there. I hope Cyclones will help promote the native arts and provide sustainable change in the area where we will be working.
I do not know what to expect, but I am going with very good critics: Mark, Brian,Julia, Florchi, Joe, and Sulan.
