When summer comes, BCA shifts gears from tours and classes to the summer internship program for college and university students. The goal of the program is to give participants a hands-on experience with broad exposure to the US-Mexico border including field trips, cultural exchange and lots of dialogue about “border issues” (economic, legal, humanitarian, public policy). This year’s students come from three universities: Science Po (Paris, France); University of North Carolina; George Washington University (Washington, DC). All have some proficiency in Spanish and some are fluent. Interns arrive June 17 and share rental housing in Nogales, Arizona. The program ends with a presentation by the interns at the Tubac Center for the Arts on Friday, July 27 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm (the public is invited). Funding for this program comes from the BCA’s Folklorico Celebration (held March 4) and donations by friends like you! BCA provides housing for the students, a food stipend and lots of volunteer support. Many, many thanks to Diane Brooks for coordinating this program again this year and to her many helpers.
