For the second time ever, the Office of Community Service will be offering a Summer Alternative Break trip! The trip will focus on homelessness and poverty. We will leave July 26, 2013 and arrive back here on campus July 28, 2013; we can discuss departure and arrival times at the MANDATORY pre-trip meeting.
The goal for this trip is to learn how and why some people are homeless while participating in activities that simulate similar experiences of what the homeless population goes through. As a volunteer, you could work in a soup kitchen, food pantry, or an urban garden! Don’t miss out on this amazing trip!
**Preference will be given to students currently enrolled in courses, but this is not mandatory**
