UN VERANO CON ARISE
Un Verano con ARISE / A Summer with ARISE
"Nineteen years of Youth creating community through service!"
Each summer, ARISE invites volunteers from all over the USA and Mexico to join community youth to provide six weeks of learning and fun for children during their long, hot summer. This program “Un Verano con ARISE" is a cross-cultural opportunity for you and young adults to serve the communities of South Texas and learn about each other. For a week or more, each group works, learns, and reflects together; guided and supported by the community residents and staff of ARISE. In addition, ARISE provides opportunities for groups to meet the people of each community, sharing meals and special days and arranges field trips and visits to explore the border region.
ARISE is a community development group that is run by, for and from the people of each of the three communities it serves. These communities, called colonias, are economically impoverished but are working together to improve life for their neighbors and their families. The staff of ARISE and the people of this community, welcome you with open arms and thank you for being willing to share your summer and skills with us.
