Hermosillo, Mexico Spring Break Program

Little Wings is an innovative reciprocal seminar, designed collaboratively by ITESM Sonora-Norte, Study Arizona: Short-Term Programs, UA Study Abroad, and the UA Blue Chip Leadership Experience.

Students from Mexico and the UA work together in Tucson during one week in the fall creating a curriculum for children at risk of not finishing school in Hermosillo, Mexico. The curriculum is jointly delivered to children in Hermosillo during spring break, giving students from Mexico and the UA meaningful study abroad experiences.

Students participate in workshops to enhance their intercultural competence as they develop social entrepreneurship and leadership skills.
