ProMexico's semester abroad provides a unique blend of service projects, field research, academic courses, homestay living, and cultural activities. You will participate in community-driven, hands-on development projects like supporting a Zapotec women's weaving cooperative or helping rural community teachers at overcrowded and underfunded schools. You will study with local professors to better understand the history and diversity of Oaxaca and Mexico, then explore that diversity by visiting rural villages that maintain a centuries-old way of life. You will immerse yourself in the culture by living with a caring and carefully selected local family.
