We discuss a project in which Master's students in counselor education participated in an innovative project involving social justice through service learning in Guatemala. Students built a home, hen house, and stove while interacting with families and children living in extreme poverty. Students also learned about and experienced Guatemalan cultural dynamics, including resilience, collectivist engagement, and mental health needs. Additionally, students experienced an empowerment-based organizational leadership style that has resulted in a self-sustaining means to address poverty and oppression. Students reported transformational personal and professional development from participating in this project.
