Every maymester, Georgia State students participate in an immersive educational experience in Cuernavaca, Mexico. While there they learn about Mexican culture, education and transnational movements of people over borders.
The students participate in an alternative education project where they learn about the project’s programs and philosophy. The alternative education project is a non-profit organization that educates some of Mexico’s poorest youth based in the Four Agreements, and on a pedagogy of gratitude and mindfulness.
Photos here include the eleven Georgia State students that went on this immersive educational experience. While there they learned about Mexican culture, education and transnational movements of people over borders.
During a service-learning moment, the students helped create and paint a mural on the Caminando Unidos building.
