July 23, 2019 – Day 13: Border Visit

Today in Chicago participants started off the day like most days, with icebreakers led by the XLs. They continue to laugh and enjoy themselves with these activities before heading into dialogue.
After lunch, our Chicago participants spent the afternoon working on their films with our wonderful cinematographers, who come in to help turn the participants’ plans into a reality. 

 

After they wrapped up their film production, participants boarded the bus to Elder Park where our community of volunteers came together to keep the participants fed and entertained for the entire evening.

In San Diego, participants boarded the bus after icebreakers today to go to the U.S./Mexico border, where they met with Mexican youth and learned more about the dynamics related to this border and explored the differences between the borders here and in Israel/Palestine. After a full day spent at the border, the participants headed back north for a hosted gathering.
