Alumni Mexico Mission Trek: Applications due by Dec. 20
Magis is pleased to announce its first ever global immersion opportunity for Jesuit-educated alumni, which will take place April 14-20, 2013.
Mexico Mission Trek aims to build a community experience for a group of 16 alumni who will engage in a short-term service project to build a home side-by-side with a family in Tijuana, Mexico through Esperanza International, a non-profit agency which "cultivates global citizenship through international service experiences in working toward a better world."
Alumni participants of the Mexico Mission Trek will:
- Explore what a faith that does justice means to them, along with social analysis on some of the issues impacting the local community pre-Trek.
- Work together for one week to build a home alongside the community in Tijuana in order to bring about a sense of being men and women for and with others.
- Reflect on the experience of service with each other via a post-Trek gathering and retreat.
Application deadline is Thursday, Dec. 20, 2012. Cost for the immersion program is $525 (includes pre- and post-trip gatherings, lodging, transportation, site visits and meals) plus cost of airfare to/from San Diego. Partial scholarships are available. Consider applying with a spouse/partner/immediate family member. For an application, or more information, visit the Magis Programs page.
