Because we do not leave the work to tour companies these trips take more than 18 months of planning, preparation and collaboration with faculty, administration, students, parents and partners abroad. Part of this work entails fundraising to help offset costs and make travel accessible to all, regardless of socioeconomic status.
This school year Payton Spanish teachers are leading an exchange to Buenos Aires, Argentina for a group of 18 exceptional Spanish students. Our students are thrilled to hone their Spanish abroad and experience Argentinean culture firsthand, as well as host an amigo/a argentino/a next February in our fair city of Chicago. But our travel group needs your help!
We have posted a project on DonorsChoose.org that is approved, live and ready to receive donations. Through this project we are trying to raise funds to help offset the cost of airfare for our Argentina trip. To Argentina or Bust: Cultural Immersion in Buenos Aires, has $1198.06 to go before it expires on November 19.
This is an all or nothing fundraiser and we need your support as the project expiration is fast approaching. Please consider helping us out!
