Casa Bayanihan offers you an opportunity to immerse yourself in the reality of the Philippines. The program is rooted in four components, or pillars: accompaniment, academics, community, and spirituality. Beginning with sustained accompaniment of the poor, the Casa Bayanihan integrates praxis experience into rigorous academic reflection, and then supports this reflection through a carefully structured web of spiritual and communal support. This then facilitates the transformation needed to develop a “well-educated solidarity.”
A significant aspect of your Casa experience will include field placement or what we refer to as praxis site. In the praxis site, you will be placed within a small community where you will accompany and develop unique relationships with the local Filipino people. Learning amidst the gritty reality of these poor communities will be one of the most important aspects of your immersion experience.
