Border Servant Corps

Border Servant Corps promotes and demonstrates justice, kindness, and humility through the intentional exploration of community, simplicity, social justice, and spirituality in the U.S./México border region. BSC does this by:

  • hosting groups interested in accompaniment-style immersion, where relationships and first-hand educational experiences about border issues are prioritized;
  • creating opportunities for community members to immerse themselves in education and service in the borderlands;
  • accompanying our sisters and brothers on the U.S. / México border.
