El Otro Lado
El Otro Lado (EOL) is a Lasallian border immersion experience which will travel to the U.S./Mexico border.
EOL participants will explore the many issues related to border realities such as: immigration, asylum seekers, unaccompanied minors, youth at risk, and the complex cultural dichotomy of the U.S. and Mexico borderland. Representatives from various organizations from both sides of the border, such as Border Patrol and grassroots organizations, will be hosting different sessions throughout the week to give participants and overall picture of the borderland. Participants will explore and conduct service work throughout their time with EOL while learning about the many issues related to the border realities.
