This summer, Kroc School students who are part of the MA in Peace and Justice (MAPJ) program have internships working with peacebuilding organizations in the United States and around the world. Before departing for their internships, students were asked to share updates from their internship experience, and this is one such contribution from MAPJ student Jeniffer Rivera Rodriguez. This summer, Jeniffer is interning with the Center for Community Transformation at the Fresno Pacific University whose mission is to "Work for the social, economic, physical and spiritual welfare of San Joaquin Valley communities." Stay tuned for more updates from these students this summer.
