Program Description

Peru: Villa El Salvador Solidarity Trip
International Service Immersion Trip
Sponsored by the Center for Ministry & Service

Regis students will be given the opportunity to apply for a service immersion trip to Villa El Salvador, Peru, sponsored by the Center for Ministry and Service. Students will travel to Villa El Salvador, Peru a coastal village (just over 30 years old) of about 400,000 residents, located 12 miles southwest of Lima. Students will have the opportunity to work with locals from Villa El Salvador and learn of the different challenges that face the young village. Students will have the opportunity to interact with infants and children in the local orphanages, the elderly in the nursing homes, and the youth who are involved with the local parish and University. Be ready to spend every night reflecting in community and dancing under the moonlit sky.

Service trips are ideal experiences for students who seek to use their talents to the service of those most in need, who seek to learn from new cultures and traditions, and students who are willing to have an open heart and an open mind in the face of new challenges. This is a credit bearing opportunity and attendance at pre-trip and post-trip meetings are expected of all students who enroll. Fundraising is also expected of all students who are accepted.

Applying is the first step to this process. After your application is finalized and received, you will be interviewed by the staff and faculty members leading this trip.
