Yes, it’s true! We love it when students get credit for both travel and learning. Online courses make it easy to earn credit at a student’s own pace. Units from Santa Barbara City College help for future college applications, internships and resumes.

Register for a Peace Works Travel upcoming student travel program. The first option is to register for our Spring Break San Diego-Tijuana Crossing Borders trip (March 19-23) Travelers bear witness to diverse voices: Border Patrol, anti-immigrant activists, bi-national clergy, humanitarians, creative artists and lawyers.
