Program Description:
MEXICO CITY - Warm Heart Hostel
Saturday, March 7 - Saturday, March 14, 2020

Explore distinct opportunities each day to serve, build relationships, and learn in a cross-cultural context. Students will meet with local Christian organizations who are working in community development in Mexico City and learn about the rich cultural heritage in this historic city.

Students may spend part of the week assisting at the ministry site with small projects such as painting or cleaning. In addition, students will also integrate into the life of the community by attending church, community events with the Hostel, shadowing local partners, and completing tasks as assigned by the partner.

Teams will travel via airplane and stay in the hostel.
