During the summer of 2008, thirty DeSales students and chaperones traveled to Tijuana, Mexico for a ten day mission trip. We traveled with an organization called Los Embajadores, a non-profit organization that provides Catholic-based mission programs for youth. (For more information visit http://www.losembajadores.org/public/).
While in Tijuana, we helped build a fence for a local Catholic school and made a sandbag wall to minimize the effects of erosion. The mission trip gave our group chances to learn first-hand about immigration, the border fence controversy and social justice. We were given many opportunities to serve the poor, the less fortunate and the youth of the community through various activities. The next opportunity to participate in a mission trip will be the summer of 2011. Please contact Michael Scheel at DeSales High School for more information.
