About: El Paso, Texas is part of a binational metropolitan area with significant shared heritage between the United States and Mexico.

We will be working with Cristo Rey, a local ministry, and connecting with community members, advocacy groups, and policy makers. The border immersion program includes meeting with members of the Cristo Rey community, experiencing Mexican and Mexican-American culture (and some really great food!!!), planning and facilitating activities for Cristo Rey’s After School Program, meeting with border patrol and much more!
