Education

BorderLinks offers educational programs that consist of border immersion opportunities for groups and individuals, community workshops, and programs focusing on food security and sustainability. Specifically, these programs include:

Delegations: Since 1987, BorderLinks has been facilitating delegations in the Arizona-Sonora region and beyond the border to Chiapas, the Copper Canyon, Alamos, Chicago, and Santa Barbara.  These immersion visits offer groups the opportunity to interact with our neighbors in the U.S. and Mexico.  Our delegations visit with individuals and organizations that provide basic assistance to migrants, create community-based alternatives, advocate for just policies, and much more.  You will meet with people that are directly affected by current economic and immigration policies, and you’ll be given tools and resources to work for justice.  

Workshops:  Our Community Workshops provide educational dynamics and activities to groups who are either not able to participate in a delegation or would like a shorter educational experience for their class, church, or civic group.  Offered on a sliding scale basis, Community Workshops provide interactive learning experiences around issues such as immigration, fair trade, economics, privilege, and intercultural understanding. 

Sustainable Futures Program:  An integral subset of the Delegations Program, this program provides program participants with delicious healthy, local, organic, vegetarian meals, while also integrating educational activities around food security and the link between consumer choices and immigration.

Logistics:  Logistical information on scheduling, cost, registration, and preparation for a BorderLinks program.
