Medicos in Solidarity is a service-learning partnership between the small community clinics in Chacraseca and Santa Emilia and a non-geographic group of health professionals in the US.
JustHope supports and nurtures several styles of partnership. Each style has its own level of commitment and type of participation; but all of them begin with the recognition that although one’s partner may not be an “equal” in wealth, power, or access to opportunity, or may not be an “equal” in spiritual depth or the capacity for hope, they are of equal value and have equal rights to dignity, respect, and human flourishing.

Tulsa Community College and JustHope have initated a service-learning partnership grounded in the opportunities for shared service and learning.
From Phillips Theological Seminary, a Service-Learning Partner, a Doctor of Ministry class traveled to Chacraseca in June 2010 to listen to and learn from the economically challenged but politically astute community members about the intersection of religion, politics, and social justice issues in their community and their lives. As a result, several Phillips students have become engaged in JustHope and two new Covenant Partnerships were established.
Other classes and opportunities for students to engage in immersion reflection and service-learning are being explored.
In May of 2009 a group of students from TU’s United Campus Ministry, a Support Partner, traveled to Chacraseca and Santa Emilia with JustHope.
