GLOBAL EDUCATION SQUAD: McCarthy HS Impact Report

Written by Alexa Schmidt

On April 10, 2017

[vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1498687025991{background-color: #f8f5ef !important;}”][vc_column][mk_padding_divider][vc_column_text]McCarthy HS Global Education Squad returned last week from making a big impact at the Clemente Avendano Elementary School in Cartago, Costa Rica. The group of 14 students and teachers continued the much appreciated efforts of a preceding Squad by beautifying the walls of the school and building and finishing book shelves for the classrooms. When not working on small constructions projects, the McCarthy HS students taught English lessons and led games and activities with the kindergarten classroom. Much gratitude to McCarthy HS-Global Education Squad for their efforts towards improving educational outcomes in Costa Rica![/vc_column_text][mk_gallery images=”463,464,462,461,458,465,466,457,459,456,455,454,453,460,452,451,450,449,448″ order=”DESC”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Each Squad type has a skill-based focus area that support the education, health and economic development objectives of community partners.
