Special Focus Delegations


Delegations fill quickly and must be booked in advance in order to give enough preparation time.  This is especially true for spring delegations.  We encourage groups who are looking to come in the spring to call at least 6 months in advance.  Small groups are encouraged to participate in these programs.  Contact us to join.

Seminar for Educators

Participate in cultural exchanges and role playing activities, learn about education legislation, and network with other educators to brainstorm how to address immigration in the classroom.
