San Antonio and South

Immigration and Migration

San AntonioCome and experience life and diversity in the seventh largest city in the U.S. and along the U.S./Mexico border. Hear Spanish spoken; learn about Tejano and Mexican culture and history; volunteer in service learning placement; see and understand the needs and concerns of urban folks and farmworkers who travel yearly from South Texas to Ohio, and those living in the borderlands.

In San Antonio students will stay in a house (La Casa de Maria y Marta). While in the South Texas Rio Grande Valley students will stay at Our Savior Lutheran Church in McAllen. In both locations the group will be preparing many of their own meals.
