Gettysburg College's Center for Public Service (CPS), in collaboration with Project Gettysburg León (PGL), sends students for immersion projects to our sister city León, Nicaragua. Immersion projects are off-campus, educational service opportunities where students travel to a site to serve in a community different from their own. Students learn about themselves and the world by working alongside people. These are the experiences and reflections from the trips.
