Two hours each day will be devoted to small group discussions with Mexican high school and university students. We will discuss poverty, alcohol abuse, prejudice, discrimination, marriage, religion, and music, among other topics. Interpreters will be provided. The rest of the time will include cultural excursions, interactions with Mexican students and their families, and sightseeing. The all-inclusive cost, not including airfare, will be $1,200 per person. This cost covers room and board, transportation while in Mexico, and all other expenses (except souvenirs) associated with the stay in Mexico.


Dr. Samuel Brown, a sociology Instructor living in Connecticut, will be leading the trip. Please contact him at [], cell: 203-597-7181 with any questions. Dr. Brown is a longtime volunteer with Project Amigo and has participated in many service weeks there. He notes that the food and accommodations are excellent and that participants can be assured to only visit places that are safe and secure. No knowledge of Spanish is necessary for the trip. Project Amigo staff will always be with the group and will provide interpreters for all events. Specific questions about Project Amigo may be directed to Kirk Dretzka, the Executive Director [].
