Honors Program Los Niños Immersion Trip, August 2010

The Honors Program has sponsored a service trip in conjunction with Los Niños to Tijuana and Mexicali, Mexico, for several years.  We are planning to do a similar trip this summer, to either Tijuana or Guatemala, this August.  This year however, it will be part of a three-credit course, HP 291, Justice and Democracy in a Global Context, that will focus on a critical examination of issues related to community development and service in the context of the history of Los Niños as an organization.  Registration for the course may be on the Summer III schedule (in which case students would need to pay summer tuition) or on the Fall 2010 schedule (as part of the normal 18 hour load there would be no additional tuition involved).  A travel fee will be necessary, although it will be subsidized by the Honors Program.  The course will offer Honors Program credit, and International (R) or Diversity core credit.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please respond by email to rkolesar@jcu.edu.
