A bustling group of young teenagers with the Jesuit logo plastered across their chest and elderly folks wearing their native clothes, approach a golden beach. Soon one group ventures into a separated small lagoon, marked by a shallow sand bar, while another settles down by some rocks overlooking the ocean. At the lagoon, the elderly wade into the water...
Comfortable clothes, a warm bed, an air-conditioned home, filling food, and thirst-quenching drinks. All commodities the Jesuit junior group who trekked to Waco for an eye-opening weekend full of sweat, hunger, and discomfort did not have. Earlier this year in March, a group consisting of four faculty, and twelve juniors traveled to Waco, Texas in order to take part...
The trip where students are forced to carry 49 pounds of (medical) drugs through foreign airports. Where students spend hours driving up and down one-lane roads on the sides of mountains, fearing each bump as if the truck is going to tip over. Where each day is spent with 6-10 hours in a clinic, tending to the needs of...

In front of them, a sidewalk ran up to a worn-out, aged school that doubled as an orphanage for girls, ages ranging from...
Sunday morning: A young student wakes up at 6 am in a country on the opposite continent of his home. Along with the fourteen other young men, he travels on public transportation crowded with local citizens of all ages. Once they get off the bus, they began the long walk up an incline a couple hundred yards long to get...
In a small town in southern Peru, a young Peruvian boy tugs on the shirt of a rising Jesuit Dallas senior, his eyes imploring the soon-to-be graduate to stay a few more minutes. The seemingly incredible divide between the two dissolves through a mutual desire to be with each other. As a part of the many summer programs Jesuit offers, the...
