Get-Away Families

Get-Away Families

UWC-USA is fortunate to have strong community ties with families throughout Northern New Mexico. Get-Away families provide gracious friendship and connection for our students. The relationships that develop through the Get-Away Family Program are the foundation for intercultural understanding and forge strong ties between our local and global communities.

New and returning Get-Away families are encouraged to fill out the online registration form by the end of August of each year so that you can be matched with a student before our annual Sundae Sunday event in early September. We try to match students and families who have similar interests. The Sundae Sunday ice cream social is a way for approved families and students to meet and become acquainted for the first time.

“By embracing our mission to make education a force to unite people, nations, and cultures for peace and a sustainable future, our students also commit to a set of values that guide their actions and interactions, on campus and beyond. They do so in partnership with a staff dedicated to the same ideals, who serve as models and mentors.”
