Hyde Center for Global Education

Kigali, Rwanda

The Hyde Center is excited to announce our partnership with St. Ignatius School in Kigali, Rwanda! This trip will call for students who want to be leaders; who want to forge the way in a groundbreaking new partnership; and who want to experience a country and culture that turned hardship, tragedy and hate into peace, reconciliation and love.
During this program, BC High students will stay with host families; attend daily classes; participate in a collaborative retreat with students from St. Ignatius; trek mountain gorillas; and experience all the Rwandan culture has to offer.  While the Hyde Center will take the lead in this program, students from Fordham Prep in New York will join our group! 
Eligibility and Application Process: Current sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible to apply. 

Program Dates: 12 - 14 days at the conclusion of the school year
