Get involved with Alternative Spring Break!
We have exciting news to share regarding our spring trips for this year! There will be 2 different service opportunities available for you to participate in. Both opportunities will be for 3 days (March 22-24).
Our in-person service event will be in partnership with the Living Lands & Water. This will be a 3-day event lasting a couple of hours each day. Our group will go out to a local spot that needs beautifying and clean up the area (probably along the lakefront). This is a competition between other schools- the school that collects the most garbage will win a prize! (Hopefully, that will be us!)
Our virtual event will be experiencing Guatemala from your home! We are working with an organization called Highland Support Project, which works to empower indigenous communities by providing opportunities for education, community organization, supporting social entrepreneurs, and addressing health and poverty in the face of shifting political arenas and environmental changes. This opportunity will consist of speakers and discussions on Guatemalan culture. We will be fundraising for a clean-burning stove and virtually connecting with the family receiving it.
Typically we charge $150 for Alternative Spring Break trips, but for this semester, we will be charging $20 for each "trip." The funds will go directly towards the Highland Support Project.
