Geographic areas served: Arizona-Sonora borderlands, Chiapas, Copper Canyon, U.S. nationwide

Programs: BorderLinks currently provides transformational educational programs to over 500 people per year, offering 1-10 day Arizona-Sonora border delegations, extended summer civic engagement programs, community workshops, and programs in Chiapas and the Copper Canyon. These programs focus on topics such as border history, immigration policies, economics, and the public discourse about immigration. Participants gain a deeper understanding of border and immigration policies through direct experience, engage in focused reflection, and make connections to communities in the U.S. and Mexico.

Mission:
BorderLinks is an international leader in experiential education that raises awareness and inspires action around global political economics. BorderLinks transforms lives by bringing people together to engage critically and creatively with communities impacted by immigration and border policies in the U.S. and Mexico. Our experiential educational programs, workshops, and bi-national partnerships put local issues into a global context, encouraging individuals to join with each other to build movements for personal and societal change.
Results:
Annually, BorderLinks works with over 600 individuals who learn about border and immigration policies and use their experiences to take action in their own communities and nationwide. We work in solidarity and accompaniment with individuals and organizations impacted by immigration policies and build a deeper understanding of the border situation. We partner with the HEPAC community center in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico to provide workshops and community empowerment opportunities.
