Through dynamic educational experiences, The Columban Mission Center in El Paso, Texas, offers exposure programs to border issues — poverty, migration and human rights. These immersion programs offer groups the opportunity to interact with our neighbors in the U.S. and Mexico.  The delegations visit with individuals and organizations that provide basic assistance to migrants, create community-based alternatives, advocate for just policies, and much more. You will meet with people that are directly affected by current economic and immigration policies, and you’ll be given tools and resources to work for justice.
