ALUMNI MEXICO MISSION TREK
A Global Immersion Program for Jesuit-Educated Alumni
Sunday, April 14 – Saturday, April 20, 2013 
Tijuana, Baja California (Mexico)  
 

Magis is excited to announce its first ever global immersion opportunity! Mexico Mission Trek aims to build a community experience for a group of sixteen alumni who will engage in a short-term service project to build a home side-by-side with a family in Tijuana, Mexico via 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, December 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
