CSPP Mexico Immersion Program Details » Donate Online
It is a matter of social justice to better meet the mental health needs of Latino communities. The California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) at Alliant International University seeks to meet this goal through its mission of training clinicians to work in an increasingly international and multicultural world. As part of this effort, CSPP offers a five-week summer immersion program each year at the Alliant campus in Mexico City. Thoughout the five-week program, participants engage in activities including work with the community, such as Camp Dulce Hogar.
This year, as part of the Meixco Immersion Program, we hosted a one-day camp for nearly 60 children from Fundación Hogar Dulce Hogar ("Home Sweet Home Foundation") which is a home for children ages 0-16. The children from Fundación Hogar Dulce Hogar are fostered and/or orphaned children. Home Sweet Home offers them "shelter, nutritious meals, clothing, education medical attention and various recreational activities” in order to fulfill their mission. "To be a safe home for children that are at risk, offering them the possibility of living a childhood with dignity, happiness and love in a secure environment that impels their integral development.” The camp is a traditional, fun-filled camp coupled with activities that are designed to enhance self-esteem, build confidence and increase resiliency, and our Mexico Immersion students had the joy of being with the children during the camp.
We invite you to support and enhance the continued operations of this program by making a donation to this fund. We also welcome you to participate in the immersion program, engage and dialogue, and be a part of an experience aimed at transforming how we approach clinical work in our interconnected world.
