Ever wondered what it would be like to visit your mother's land? The CubaOne Foundation is doing just that for millennial Cuban Americans.
Modeled after the Birthright Israel trips the CubaOne Foundation donates trips to young Cubans looking to reconnect with their roots.
I sat down with co-founder and program lead Cherie Cancio and Amanda Rabines one of the alum from the organizations first trip June, 2016 to talk about what the experience is like for those going back and for first time visitors.
This is a recording of the live show hosted at Jolt Radio.
Meet Them Mondays air's the second and third Monday of each month. To listen live tune into joltradio.org or download the app on iTunes.
