Volunteering: Developing the knowledge, skills, and values for civic and career readiness!
The Office of Student Life, in partnership with student organizations across campus, provides opportunities for students to engage in their local communities. Through mutually beneficial volunteer projects, students are immersed in impactful direct service with members of the surrounding community.
Volunteering is a two way street, we are serving and learning simultaneously. Through volunteer projects not only are we able to address an immediate community need, but we are able to learn about important social issues, how they effect those around us, and how we can more deeply work toward long-term change.
Alternative Breaks engages students in capacity building, skill building, and identity development through community-based volunteer projects. Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a week-long service-learning experience, which immerses students in service within communities locally and around the country.
This year's Spring Break Trip will take place at Camp Restore in Detroit, Michigan. The group will depart from campus on Sunday, February 25th, and stay on-site through Friday, March 1st.
Trip Focus: Community Building & Neighborhood Revitalization
Camp Restore helps address communities in Detroit in three main areas:
- Environmental (Community Gardens, Neighborhoods clean-ups)
- Human Care (Children's Tutoring Programs, Soup Kitchen, Food Pantries)
- Construction (Home Restoration, Boarding Abandoned Homes)
