Mexico is much more than a spring break destination. It is the business capital of Latin America and the United States’ third largest trading partner. Improve your Spanish language skills and understanding of Mexican culture in order to communicate with and serve the largest immigrant group in the US.

Each of our unique programs at our campus in Cuernavaca follow the CGEE model of experiential learning and are community-based. Students are immersed in various Mexican realities by meeting directly with people of diverse backgrounds, gaining essential skills for future academic and professional pursuits.

programs include:


  • Focus on peace, justice, corporate responsibility, sustainability, and social change throughout Mexico
  • Intentional intercultural learning through topics such as Mexican history and politics, gender roles and sexuality, human rights, immigration, Indigenous cosmovision, and more
  • Homestays with both rural and urban host families to add to the in-depth cultural experience. When not with host families, students stay in the CGEE house, a 10-minute walk from downtown Cuernavaca, a vibrant and exciting city
  • Spanish-language courses, ranging from beginning to advanced levels, for each program
  • Internships (for credit; unpaid) are also available
  • In-country excursions (included with program costs). Experience Mexico City, Amatlan, Oaxaca, and more.*

*Please note regional travel will vary depending on program of participation and time of year.
