University of San Francisco, July 2009

USF students returned this year to continue the construction of their project for a Community Center in the rural community of Goyena that was designed and begun the previous year.

During the course of the previous academic year, the students had worked on the design for a new youth center in Nagarote for the Norwalk Nagarote Sister City project. Click her to see photos of the Youth Center

The students visited the site of the youth center in Nagarote to meet with the staff and students in the programs there. They also visited the site of a new proposed project to design a community center for a rural community near the Honduran border, La Consulta, and to design a prototypical house that can be built using local materials and labor.
