  •  Casa Alumni Participate in Jesuit Solidarity Network

    Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012

    In November more than twenty Casa alums gathered in Washington DC for the annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice.  The Teach-In is an opportunity for students and educators from Jesuit high schools and universities across the country to come together for a weekend and share how they and their schools are striving to be "men and women for others."  Casa alumni from both El Salvador and the Philippines helped to table throughout the weekend and speak with interested students about their experience studying abroad.  The alums also got together Friday night and shared pizza and a small reflectionabout transitioning back to the states.  Casa alums Laura Snowden (Santa Clara University) and Beth Keenan (St. Joseph's University) gave one of the keynote speeches about their time in El Salvador and learning about the history of Salvadoran martyrs.  It was a wonderful weekend and a great reminder that studying abroad with Casa does not end after just a semester; it is an gateway to the greater Jesuit network and all those who work for justice!
