El Salvador

Campus Ministry Immersion Trip to El Salvador

Students will be hosted by the organization CRISPAZ (Christians for Peace in El Salvador). This is a faith-based experience where participants learn from the Salvadoran people about their lives, histories and hopes for the future. A major focus of the encounter is to reflect on the meaning of working for justice rather than working for charity, understanding one's role as a global citizen and humanizing the different issues that are present in our societies. Participants learn directly from the Salvadorans about issues such as the impact of war, neo-liberal economics, U.S. foreign policy, migration, the environment and a tradition of liberating faith. The focus of the El Salvador Mission Trip is not only to develop a greater knowledge of El Salvador as a whole, but also to develop an understanding of the people and to build relationships. 

Students interested in learning more about the summer mission trips should visit the Campus Ministry website. All applicants must be approved through their office.
