Campus Recreation is excited to announce the partnership with the Center of Community Engagement to offer an alternative spring break trip to Puerto Rico to the Campus Recreation student staff!
Throughout the month of October, some of the staff who plan to go on the trip will be working to raise additional funds for their trip. Watch the Campus Recreation social media to see more!
Since ISU students first went to Jackson, Mississippi in 2004, for Alternative Spring Break (ASB), hundreds of Sycamores have participated in a variety of Alternative Break (AB) projects throughout the United States and Internationally. Outreach efforts have included: working with youth, working with the elderly, environmental rehabilitation, wildlife rehabilitation, Gulf Coast clean-up, and minor home repair. Alternative Break is a student-driven national movement that creates opportunities for students to reach out to communities around the United States and the world. It fosters a lifelong commitment to citizenship and community engagement.
This year, Campus Recreation was afforded the opportunity to work with the Center of Community Engagement to plan an Alternative Spring Break Trip to Puerto Rico for Campus Recreation student staff. During the week, students will focus on completing projects that address hunger, homelessness, childhood education, and the environment. The trip costs each student $1,600. This amount includes everything for the 8 days in Puerto Rico (minus travel day food). The trip can take up to 20 students.
Any form of donation is greatly appreciated and will help support the students in this once in a lifetime opportunity!
