Description: The team will travel to St. Innocent Orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico. St. Innocent Orphanage provides a home for teenage boys who otherwise would be forced to live on the streets. This is the only facility in all of Tijuana which focuses on orphaned and abused teenage boys.
The team will be serving the orphanage in various ways, but more specifically on construction/maintenance projects. Each day they will have a chance to interact with the boys from the Orphanage that live there.
