GATE offers cultural   immersion programs and   pilgrimage opportunities in Latin America. 

Our mission is to create
an awareness of other
cultures and their realities through people-to-people connections.  

We offer the opportunity to learn from the poor, as well as, from social analysts,   teachers, theologians and economists. The program connects participants   with marginalized who, despite struggle, find hope
in their reality.

"There is no

foreign land; it is

the traveler only

that is foreign."
