The Tucson Borderlands site offers an opportunity to experience and explore the call of the gospel in the social and political realities of the U.S./Mexico border region. Our placements serve the program needs of churches, agencies and programs and address the social and economic consequences of global and free trade policies.
Tucson volunteers live together in a rented house and are invited to explore biking and public transportation options during their year of service.
Volunteers participate in the Volunteers Exploring Vocation curriculum, an 16-session process of spiritual direction and vocational discernment as well as one on one spiritual direction and regular meetings with the site coordinator. Weekly house meetings include book studies and discussion of house business and projects.
