9780966871685: Many Hands, One Dream: the Story of Project Mexico

This book narrates the story of Project Mexico, a ten-day service immersion program to Tijuana and Tecate, Mexico sponsored annually by the Center for Values and Service of Loyola College in Maryland. Begun in 1987, the program takes approximately twenty students to Mexico each year for direct service, cultural immersion, and the different kind of education that occurs when we cross borders – literally and symbolically.

Included in this volume are a history and overview of the program, and a series of edited reflections by participants from over the years that provide insight into the program’s vision and mission, the experience of being part of such an endeavor, the impact it has on those involved, and the learning that it provokes. But it also invites you, the reader, to contemplate, in light of your own life experience, how these themes might stimulate further insights into your own choices, values, and understanding of both intimately personal as well as globally important issues.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"I still have very fond memories of Project Mexico and the impact it had on my life. In a post 9-11 world plagued with continuing threats of terror and increasingly prominent chasms between various cultural and religious groups, I often think about the role that Project Mexico plays in building bridges of understanding and acceptance. I also think about the role that extreme poverty plays in contributing to some of society’s most insidious ills, and wonder how much better off the world would be if many more people had an opportunity to experience something as eye-opening and transforming as Project Mexico."

– Cindy Lorenz
