Education, Cultural Exchange, Social Advocacy

Border Community Alliance (BCA) offers access to the heritage and potential of the borderlands through cultural exchange and social advocacy. This work is accomplished in partnership with FESAC, a Sonoran community foundation. We aim to provide a community service of public benefit by connecting people and cultures across borders, cultivating awareness and a strong sense of international community.

BCA is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit located in Tubac, Arizona. We provide opportunities for learning via experiential cultural programs to residents and visitors of Southern Arizona.

We aspire to facilitate positive and enlightening interaction between Sonoran and Arizonan or Mexican and American. Consider joining us on a cultural exchange to know your neighbor.

BCA Internship

The BCA Internship Program seeks to give participants broad exposure and provide hands-on experience to the realities of border life. Interns will experience perspectives from both sides of the border—politically, culturally, socially, and environmentally. Living close to the border is more than textbook theory. It is like having one foot in Mexico, and the other in the United States. BCA interns will have unique opportunities to dialogue with borderland writers, teachers, politicians, artists, migrants, social activists, environmentalists, and attorneys. And friendships are often forged for life.

Classes & Workshops: The Borderlands Forum

The Borderlands Forum series of classes and workshops offered by BCA seeks to promote understanding and appreciation of the borderlands as a cross-cultural, binational resource. The forum provides focus, energy and quality to the educational mission of Border Community Alliance.  Our aim is to be a clear, strong voice advocating mutual respect for the cultural diversity of the US-Mexico border region, thereby moderating the forces of xenophobia and racism that affect our region.
