Program Description:

This innovative summer initiative is coordinated, staffed, and hosted by El Instituto de Ciencias, our Jesuit school in Guadalajara. Students who participate will enrich their Spanish, complete four service projects through Jesuit partners, explore the rich culture of Jalisco, and live with a host family, all while meeting new friends from other American Jesuit high schools who are also enrolled. Through participation in the program, students will more deeply understand and respect the linguistic, historical and cultural richness of Mexico while also exploring the interrelatedness of faith and justice. We will very intentionally focus upon developing the skills to listen with reverence and respect to the stories of those who they meet, whether on campus, at a service agency, or with their host family.
