This past week a group of 10 youth and staff from Hopeworks have been in Mexico on a service trip! They are in Cuernavaca Mexico serving with the group VAMOS, and its the second trip to the area. The first was last August with just three youth, and this trip has expanded to several more. Hundreds of students have come to Desales to serve in Camden, and these young adults from Camden are traveling all the way to Mexico to serve there and broaden their knowledge and experience of life outside Camden.
