Experiential Education with Carpe Diem

After over a year of preparation and planning and many years of dreaming, Carpe Diem Education is thrilled to announce the launch of a three-month semester program to Cuba <>!

Carpe Diem Education's specialty is small group experiential education semesters abroad, focused on community, cultural immersion, service learning, and adventure.  Our student base tends to range between 17 and 23.  College credit and Financial Aid are available through our partnership with Portland State University.

The program will have the same underlying values and core elements of all Carpe Diem programs with a unique Cuban spin. Here are a few highlights:

• Trek the mountain where the Cuban Revolution was born
• Work side by side with Cuban farmers and learn how organic farming helped to save the country from starvation
• Study Spanish, then practice with Cuban students who have never before had a chance to make friends with people from the US
• Live with a family of campesinos and try your hand at making chocolate and cacao butter
• Help with daily life on the farm in the verdant fields of ViƱales
• Reflect and explore yoga and meditation on the banks of a tropical river
• Learn the importance of conservation in a world confronting climate change
• Dive the one of the most vibrant reefs of the Caribbean

The momentum for this program is building as we have recieved loads of interest and have already begun receiving applications.

Carpe Diem Education offers two options for going abroad: a 3-month Group Semester or a Latitudes Year <> (3-month group semester plus an independent focused volunteer placement).  Our semesters run on the academic calendar: Fall and Spring.  In addition to Cuba we offer semesters in East Africa, India, Fiji/Australia/New Zealand, Southeast Asia, Central America, South America, and here in the States our Indigenous America Program!  

For a more detailed itinerary please visit the Cuba program <> page on our website <> or give us a call.
