Welcome to the Esperanza Alumni Association!
Become an EAA MEMBER today!
Whether you’ve recently returned from working in Tijuana for the first time or you’re a seasoned veteran, we thank you for the love and labor you’ve brought to the Esperanza communities.
We hope you enjoyed working with the community members and Esperanza staff. While listening to their stories and learning more about the unique challenges they face, you most likely developed strong connections and made new friends. Hopefully the conversations you had as well as visits to the border, orphanage, migrant house, and other evening activities raised questions and ignited a fire within you to do more. Don’t lose that enthusiasm!
We would like to invite you to join the Esperanza Alumni Association to stay connected with others who have shared in the life-changing Esperanza volunteer experience. The Esperanza Alumni Association is an organization that seeks to bring together Esperanza volunteers and empower them to continue living out their experience of solidarity, social service, and community engagement.
In the same way that the families in Tijuana build communities, we want to strengthen our volunteer communities on the U.S. side of the border. There are many ways to continue living out our Esperanza memories – joining the EAA can be your first step. You will have the opportunity to share pictures, swap stories, meet up at EAA get-togethers, and take part in EAA volunteer activities in the U.S.
We feel passionately about the mission of Esperanza and want to help other passionate volunteers like you find ways to continue sharing your experience with others and encourage one another during the 51 weeks out of the year when we’re not in Mexico!
