2020-2021 Travel Opportunities

With health and safety as our top priority, the OLP Travel Program is currently paused for the 2020-2021 school year. As changes and updates in travel recommendations occur, we are ready to re-engage with our travel opportunities if cleared to do so. Thank you for your understanding.

In place of our Travel Program at this time, we are excited to announce our monthly virtual service immersion opportunities.

East Los Angeles Virtual Immersion
The East Los Angeles Immersion allows OLP students to gain a greater understanding of the work that our Catholic community is doing in Los Angeles to combat poverty, homelessness, and gang rehabilitation. On this virtual immersion, students will learn about the systemic issues of homelessness, addiction, mental illness, and poverty. OLP students will also have the opportunity to learn specifically about Homeboy Industries, an organization founded by Father Greg Boyle, that fosters kinship among former gang members and the work at Dolores Mission Parish and Dolores Mission School. It will be an impactful day of learning about our neighbors in Los Angeles.
