Delegation Trips



El Salvador Encounter is a faith-based delegation experience where the participants learn from the Salvadoran people about their lives, histories, and hopes for the future. A major focus of the encounter is to reflect on the meaning of working for justice rather than working for charity, understanding one’s role as a global citizen and humanizing different issues that are present in our societies.
