    Trip Selection

    We are excited to offer the following four trips: Chautauqua Learn & Serve Charter School http://www.chautauqua-learn-serve.com/ Panama City, FL Chautauqua Learn and Serve is a charter school for adults with mental and physical disabilities. It is a unique reservoir of innovative service and relevant social activism. Working with the students of Chautauqua will offer an eye opening experience that will change your perspective on many underrepresented populations such as the disabled, elderly, homeless, and underserved. This alternative break is an opportunity to fill your spring break filled with service and sun in Panama City, Fl. Habitat for Humanity http://greenwoodhabitat.org/ Greenwood, SC The group of 10 students will be working with the Greenwood Area Habitat for Humanity. Greenwood HFH works on new projects, rehabilitation projects and neighborhood revitalization projects throughout the area.

More specific information on the type of work the team will be doing will be available closer to departure.
