Global Link Trips Depart!
Today, April 1, the first three of University Prep's spring Global Link trips departed for Samoa, Nepal and Botswana. Tomorrow, April 2, the Japan and Lithuania groups will follow suit. The 36 students, who have all taken the Global Leadership class this semester, will be culturally immersed in their respective destinations, staying with local host families and, following Global Link protocol, remaining "unplugged" from the Internet to maximize their experience.
The groups return toward the end of Spring Break, and will "Bring It Back" to UPrep, sharing their newly gained perspectives during Middle and Upper School assemblies in April and in a Global Celebration Family Night on May 2.
