Liz: I have a remarkable colleague, Dr. Valerie Leyva, who inspires students
and faculty alike. A few years ago, Val sponsored a group of students working
on their master of social work (MSW) degrees as part of an intense language
and cultural immersion learning experience in Mexico. The program operates
in a moderately sized city in central Mexico along with a cluster of language
institutes that have ongoing relationships with U.S. universities. Some of Val’s
students experienced for the first time being part of the “other”—a minority
population who does not understand or speak the dominant language. For some
students, those of Mexican American heritage, the experience had the aura of
returning to their roots.

However, the point of this story is not about the transformative experiences
of central California MSW students mentored by Dr. Valerie Leyva. Instead, it is
about a lesson learned from another student group’s experiences. That story tells
of the actions of a well-meaning student group from another university. It is a
story of intended philanthropy, generosity, compassion, charity (readers may pick
the appropriate term) that went wrong.

A large east coast U.S. metropolitan college that annually sponsors student
groups (not social work majors—I’d like to think that made a difference) sent

Facilitative Leadership in Social Work Practice

students to the language program in central Mexico. Cultural side trips, includ-
ing visiting local communities, were an important part of the immersion cur-
riculum. The students came back from one visit powerfully impacted by their
observations of the filth and poverty of a small Indio village in which families
“had nothing” and the children’s only opportunity for play “was in the dirt with
sticks.” Similar to Native American tribes in the United States, the term Indio
refers to members of Mexico’s indigenous population.

This student group returned to their U.S. university determined to help the
residents of this village and, after deliberation, decided to give to the village a cow.
The cow could provide milk for the children and be an asset that villagers would
own in common. The cow would perhaps have calves, and ultimately provide beef
and add protein to the villagers’ diets. The U.S. student group spent the year rais-
ing money to buy the cow.

The following year, a new student group arrived at the language institute
with the determination and cash (credit cards not being a medium of e
