Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village
Agahozo-Shalom organizes 10-day service learning trips for various groups and institutions. Designed for 15-20 people, program participants learn about the development of Agahozo-Shalom and the history of Rwanda while taking part in a volunteer project at the Village. Groups include college and graduate programs, religious and interfaith groups, as well as community organizations. Agahozo-Shalom offers pre-trip orientations, educational materials, meaningful service projects, class sessions that focus on topics such as faith, forgiveness, tzedekah and tikkun olam, and an extensive follow-up curriculum that brings the lessons and themes of the experience into the daily lives and communities of the volunteers.
