Discovering Peru: Church, Society, and Language in Context
Discovering Peru is a three-course (9 credit) academic service-learning program which connects theology, sociology, and Spanish language courses with community needs in Villa El Salvador, a section of Lima, Peru. Students attend class each day and also directly serve community partners for 4-5 hours. Reflection on this service in light of academic material occurs 3-4 times a week.
For one week we will also travel to the mountain city of Ayachucho. Finally, we "retreat" for 3 days on the Pacific coast of northern Peru.
