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. 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.
