Programs: Mini ICADS with Parents - One Week Study Tour
Many parents find that when their children return from study abroad, connecting can be difficult; their children struggle with this, too! Students have life-changing experiences while abroad, and may find it difficult to effectively share all they want to about their experience.
Parents want to understand, but may not know what to ask. Visiting Central America together could be a great way for families to connect, for students to share their learning, and for parents to explore the experiences their children have had.
Curious about what your student is learning this semester? Want to be able to connect with your son or daughter when the program ends? Come to Central America to experience "Mini ICADS," and find out for yourself!
Learn about issues facing Central America through site visits, talks from local experts, and exploration of both urban and rural areas of Costa Rica. We will cover issues such as urban poverty in Latin America, cooperative movements, rural development strategies, and environmental protection and conservation. Space is limited, and a minimum number of participants is required.

«I feel that my ICADS experience was a unique character-building opportunity that has equipped me with the open-mindedness and interest in foreign cultures that I will need for future opportunities. I still stay in touch with fellow students and I loved representing ICADS at my school's study abroad fair. ICADS is an amazing program that bolstered my undergraduate education and personal development.»
