UNC Ultimate Frisbee Service Trip to Guatemala

"What is this trip all about?", you may ask. Here's the run down:

Members of UNC's Men's and Women's Ultimate Frisbee teams will be taking a week-long service trip to volunteer with Safe Passage (, an NGO in Guatemala City, from June 2nd-8th, 2013. While there we will volunteer in all different parts of the project, but will focus on introducing Ultimate Frisbee to youth through the Sports Program at Safe Passage.

I have had this idea for over a year now, and I am excited to finally put it into motion. I first traveled to Safe Passage in Guatemala in the spring of 2009 after graduating from high school. I volunteered as a Teacher's Assistant and, during those first three months, began relationships with the children and project that remain strong today. During the summer of 2011, I spent another 3 months at Safe Passage volunteering as an English and Guitar Teacher. Now, I constantly think of ways that I can connect my day-to-day life in North Carolina to Safe Passage in Guatemala, and this is how the idea for a service trip with UNC's Ultimate Frisbee teams was born. Now it is a reality, and you can help make it happen!
