Apply for this year’s Alternative Spring Break with the Catholic Community!

Spend the week in Arizona immersed in learning about immigration issues and the impact on the lives of people living along the US-Mexican border. We will spend time engaged in conversations with people and groups most impacted by these issues. Our journey will begin in Phoenix, AZ where we will meet with young activists who will take us through Tucson, then Nogales to meet with Border Patrol agents, humanitarian groups and community leaders.

This trip includes:

  • Daily prayer and reflection
  • Engaging discussions
  • Air travel to and from Phoenix, AZ
  • Automobile travel from Phoenix to the border (3 hours)
  • Accommodations with host families in Phoenix and Nogales
  • Meals throughout the week

Total cost will be covered by participant fees (approx. $200), The Stanford Fund and other fundraising.

Applications are due on Sunday, January 20, 2013. Space is limited so please apply early. Contact Lourdes with any questions.

Price: $50.00
