CHRTC 339 International Service Learning: Guatemala

Students will spend a week at Hogar Madre Anna Vitiello, an orphanage in Guatemala, and help to enrich the lives of children living with HIV. This service work includes a component to increase spiritual awareness within ourselves as a means to not only serve abroad but to also practically apply the service experience locally in our own communities.

CHRTC 339 International Service Learning: Colombia

Students will spend a week at Instituto Nuestra Señora de la Asunción in Colombia. Alongside local Colombian lay-persons, they will participate in the life and work of the Basilian Fathers whose role is to provide for the human, spiritual, and educational needs of the most impoverished urban populations of that country. The parish school serves the primary grades through high school. Although located in one of the most impoverished areas of Cali, it has become one of the most outstanding schools in its state where many students have continued to post-secondary education.
