University of the Pacific Students join us for their 4th Delegation in Mexico

It’s our goal to create an international service learning experience that our participants can remember forever. That’s why we get so excited when they keep coming back.

In March, Erin Rausch, Director of The Center for Community Development at University of the Pacific in California brought her 4th delegation of students to Mexico to volunteer with us for an Alternative-Spring Break Service Experience.

For 6 years she has partnered with us, believing strongly in the values of our program.  In preparing for the trip, her students fundraise for the whole year to fund their week long service trip with CLI, and even raise extra to donate to our community projects.

This year, the students got their hands dirty, learned how to create adobe structures and helped us get further on the new Eco-Center.

Watch a video from Miquel, one of the volunteers, about his experience.

See more photos of their time with us on our Facebook page!
