Dear Parents of Potential Casa Students,

Greetings from El Salvador! Welcome to our webpage describing Casa de la Solidaridad. We hope you find this site informative and descriptive of the unique study abroad program we have created. Our website was developed to give potential students the information they need in order to discern whether or not this is the right program for them.

Being parents ourselves (four daughters), we thought it would be good to have a link specifically for you in order that you may also discern if this is the right program for your son or daughter. We invite you to take a moment and read some reflections from parents of former Casa students. If you have any further questions for us, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to give you a call to talk further about the program.


Kevin & Trena Yonkers-Talz

Co-founders and co-directors, Casa de la Solidaridad

Each semester, family members visit their sons and daughters here in El Salvador over family week. Last semester, the visiting parents decided to form a Parent Committee in order to communicate with concerned parents. If you would like to talk to members of this committee, please email Trena at and she will put you in touch with them.
