We partner with DOXA and form groups of high school students with their families to build house in the Tijuana area of Mexico. The home building experience is a unique opportunity for young American adults to truly give of themselves to those less privileged. It help students realize how fortunate and blessed they are. By the end of the trip, the almost every student leaves loving to serve and understanding why it is important to serve, in their family, in their community, and in the rest of the world.
