At Human Connections, we see our social impact as two-fold. Our tour and student program participants engage with the local community in a way that enables our clients to better their economic standing through their work. By facilitating dignified dialogue, we aim for bridging cultural gaps and breaking down stereotypes about Mexican people. Tour guests then come away with a deepened understanding and respect for Mexican culture and the economically challenged, while students also gain practical experience in the social sector.
Human Connections’ impact on clients goes hand in hand with our impact on guests, allowing us to influence the lives of both locals and travelers alike. While much of our impact is intangible and sometimes unquantifiable, we do our best to measure and fairly represent how we effect the lives of both our clients and the travelers who spend the greatest amount of time with us–students. Some of our impact, like the confidence and dignity we facilitate in our clients, simply cannot be put into numbers, but we believe that the metrics on this page begin to tell the story of the social impact of the work done at Human Connections.
