Since 1985, LMU students have been making the 145-mile journey to Tijuana, Mexico through the De Colores program. These monthly faith-based service-immersion weekends are grounded in the values of accompaniment, solidarity and community. Student participants leave behind the comforts of the LMU campus (including cell phones) and step into a different reality. These weekends can be a transformative encounter of stepping beyond borders; physical, cultural, linguistic, and personal.
Throughout the weekend, students will be invited to reflect on the experience. Our hope for all student participants is that they return home with a more informed awareness of some of the world's greatest injustices and a deeper sense of gratitude.
Any LMU student may attend by applying for individual spots. The November De Colores student applications may be accessed here.
