Jhon Henry Velasco, Director
A consistent theme in my career has been the vision, creation and implementation of new and innovative projects. The Team Nica project is an international learning delegation in Nicaragua that I created through the Center for Non Violence and Peace Initiatives in 2007. Unique to the Montclair State University community and to the design of such a project, this annual learning delegation focuses on the issues of social injustice along with understanding the public health, political, economic and social disparities between developing countries and the United States. The goal of the Team Nica learning delegation is to create social, political and conscious change/awareness through education and activism. I encourage you to please follow the journey of these amazing 18 Montclair State University students.
