Project Guanajuato


Past blogs from the 2012 team

Project Guanajuato is a summer community development internship experience for UNC undergraduates. The program was started in 2007 by undergrads who participated in the APPLES Global Course Guanajuato and collaborated with Nourish International. This project, now in its fourth year, is a collaborative effort between the Latino Migration Project and the Mexican NGO Fundación Comunitaria del Bajio.

Each summer, a team of undergraduates spends between 6+ weeks working in rural communities in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico to assist the Foundation in community development projects. Students live in rural communities that experience high levels of emigration to the United States.

In 2012, students will help teach English, recreation, arts and dance classes at local elementary and high schools. The mission of the Fundación is to create viable economic and social opportunities in communities in the Bajío region. Students live with families.
