Justice Education Trips
Justice Education Trips immerse students in circumstances and cultures beyond their own experience. Each trip involves thorough preparation and reflection upon not simply the people they will meet but also the social systems that keep people from reaching their fullest potential. Therefore, these trips are appropriately entitled, “Justice Education Trips,” not mission trips. For it is hoped that those who experience these trips will continue to reflect and consider ways to alleviate poverty well into their adult lives.
Students travel to Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi and engage in the living history of our country’s most powerful civil rights movement. Part of this education includes meeting with and hearing personal accounts of those who lived through and participated in the movement.
Partnering with the mission of San Lucas Toliman, students travel to Lake Atitlan in northwestern Guatemala. Students learn the history of Guatemala, its economic conditions, reforestation projects; they will pick coffee beans and play with the children.
Red Lake Nation
Blessed by a long and trusting relationship with members of the Red Lake Nation, students are guided through the history, traditions, spirituality, and culture of the Ojibwa people.
