International Community Involvement (ICI)
Wildwood's International Community Involvement (ICI) Program offers upper school students the opportunity to extend their community involvement to an international scale by spending spring break living, working, and learning abroad. Hands-on experiences such as working with humanitarian organizations and teaching in local schools give participants a distinct perspective about the country's social, political, and economic reality.
Destinations include Uruguay, Argentina, Guatemala, Turkey, Bulgaria, and Nepal. Some of the programs include home stays with families. Whichever ICI trip they choose, students put their Wildwood education into action, drawing on language skills and lessons from Habits of Mind and Heart to face challenges and enjoy unforgettable experiences. Through interaction, exploration, and reflection, students return with a better understanding of their world - and their role within it.
