Honduras Spring Break
Next offering for this program will be Spring Break 2018.
The Honduras program offers one credit through either the Intercultural Studies or Justice Education programs at Saint Mary's College.
We will spend most of the week at Hogar Diamante, a home for boys who have become involved in petty crime and gangs. While we are working, we will get to know the boys, learn about the challenges facing Honduran youth and families in Honduras and observe Hogar’s holistic and loving response. Past groups have done painting and fixing up of the home's classrooms and dormitories though the highlight of the trip is always spending time with the boys.
The trip will also include some sightseeing in the capital of Tegucigalpa and presentations that will help us learn more about the political and social realities in one of Latin America's poorest countries.
