The ACM Mexico Summer Program: Service Learning & Language Immersion is one of two short-term summer programs open to current students and recent graduates. This six-week program (with the option to extend to eight weeks) takes students into the heart of Mexico City, where they will be immersed in Mexican culture and Spanish language. A key component of the program is placement in a non-governmental organization (NGO) for the duration of the program. There will be a variety of organizations available to work with, and students will be actively engaged in service learning work with their specific organization. Local program staff will work with students prior to arrival and at the beginning of the program, to help determine the NGO placement.
