El Centro Students Go Abroad

Hello Friends!

As some of you may know, I am involved with The Experiment in International Living as both a group leader in Morocco and Mexico and as an alumna of the program. As an alumna, I was the recipient of a full scholarship abroad, and for that I am eternally grateful. Now, I want to exercise gratitude by paying it forward, but I need your help!

The Experiment is interested in collaborating with El Centro students in Philadelphia, and are willing to fund up to half of the costs for each student who gets into the program! My goal is to fund at least one El Centro student this summer who can serve as a cultural ambassador and who will be most enriched by the experience abroad. Any contribution is welcomed!!! I know that our students are capable of serving as international ambassadors. They have a wealth of experiences worth sharing-- and working through-- abroad. Finances shouldn't impede them. Please help me in supporting an unforgettable experience for growth for a very deserving El Centro student.

Also, in the spirit of the Holidays and gift-giving, you might consider this cause as one worth giving in the name of a friend or family member. What better way to give than for a cause you and your loved ones value?
