SolFest 2017 is a festival focused on educating on issues surrounding immigration. We coordinate and organize a large soccer tournament that we use to raise funds to donate to the Brighten the Barrio non-profit organization. Brighten the Barrio was developed
by former and current students, to ensure that young children have the opportunity to get educated locally in Guatemala rather than be forced to migrate the US in order to support their families. We also host programs and crafts centered on the Mayan culture
to help students interact and learn about a culture that is still thriving in Guatemala. We will host activities including crafts, tie-dying t-shirts, etc.
