Program Description:

Tijuana Winter Break-Out

About the Program 

Winter BreakOuts through Campus Ministry’s Center for Social Concern are a great way to learn about a new culture, meet new people, and grow in cultural understanding, while helping others.  Rooted in the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, participants in our program should grow in an understanding of global solidarity, the dignity of the human person, a preferential option for the poor and vulnerable, as well as growing in their own faith and role as a global citizen.  

Each BreakOut has a reflection leader to help facilitate the orientation process as well as the reflection along the way while traveling.

Participants in this BreakOut will travel to Tijuana, Mexico, to work with the poor through the Tijuana Christian Mission. TCM began over 50 years ago when Martha Lopez started taking children into her home who had no food, little clothes, and no education. She fed them hot meals, found them shirts and pants, and enrolled them in the local school. As time passed, more and more children began living with Martha and her family. Today, over 100 children live at the Tijuana Christian Mission. The group from UD will spend the week with Martha, her staff and the children, and do work which they couldn’t afford to do on their own. In past years, groups have built jungle gyms, roofed dormitories, built office space, laid ceramic tile, and led sports camps for the children.  Check out this video about the orphanage here:
