We have another great group of students preparing to travel to El Espino this March through Colorado Mesa University’s Mesa Catholic group. They are participating in what’s called “Alternative Spring Break,” which is exactly what it sounds like — an alternative way to spend a week that has conjures up images of drunken beach-side debauchery for college students. These students desire a more meaningful experience, and to spend their week doing something that is good for the world.

In that spirit, they have begun meeting and preparing anxiously for the trip. We will share their reflections here in the time leading up to the trip, throughout the trip, and after we return. We invite you to follow their journey here and on Facebook!
