Global Architecture Brigades

Posted: February 4, 2012

People in rural Honduran Communities must often walk 3 to 5 hours to get to the nearest hospital or secondary school, and as a result, they do not get the medical care they need or continue their education past the 6th grade. Join Penn State's Architecture Brigade to Honduras the week after finals (May 7th to 13th) to help build a hospital or school and bring access to health care and education for hundreds of people in rural communities.

Students will work side-by-side with community members to build the structure and meet the people who will be benefiting from the new building.

Speaking Spanish is not mandatory and translators will be provided during brigade.

There is a meeting/informational session Thursday,  February 16th at 7:00 p.m. in 116 Osmond.  To learn more, please contact Samantha deVries or visit
