The Center

ENLACE’s Center for Community Transformation, located in El Salvador, is dedicated to providing learning, training, and research opportunities to community development practitioners and scholars that focus on church and community-led poverty alleviation and community transformation.

Additionally, the Center hosts occasional short-term learning trips, forums, and seminars on special topics like immigration and other areas of interest to church leaders and groups.

The Center provides a home for the ongoing ENLACE Study Abroad Program, an in-country, field, and classroom-based learning experience for undergraduate and graduate students from partner universities focusing on the areas of poverty alleviation and community transformation.
