Since 2007, the Moakley Institute has partnered with Suffolk's Organization for Uplifting Lives through Service, or S.O.U.L.S., and Suffolk's College of Arts and Sciences to sponsor service learning trips to El Salvador. These trips are designed to provide Suffolk students with a unique opportunity to live and work in the communities that Moakley visited and to learn about the lasting effects of his work there. Members of these delegations meet local families, attend presentations, and participate in community service projects that allow them to contribute directly to El Salvador’s rebuilding efforts.
Please consult the Winter Break page for information about upcoming trips.
