Join the growing community of SOU "Alt Breakers" (awesome people dedicated to active citizenship) by signing up to participate in a transformative service-learning experience this spring break March 25-31! Raider Alternative Breaks is offering SOU students two different affordable opportunities to learn and serve on an unforgettable experience over your next break.
"Housing Security in the Mountain West" participants will volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver, Colorado and explore issues of housing security and justice in an urban environment. Participants pay a fee of $300 for this experience, which includes ground and air transportation, lodging, program fees, and most meals.
Students on the "People and Preservation on the Oregon Coast" experience will volunteer with The Nature Conservancy at the spectacular coastal headland Cascade Head Preserve just north of Lincoln City, Oregon. While assisting with trail maintenance to help ensure people stay on the trail and off sensitive habitat, this team will explore how habitat preservation affects people past, present, and future. The trip fee of $175 covers transportation, lodging, fees, and most food.
All Raider Alt Break participants are expected to participate in weekly pre-trip meetings (beginning week 6), volunteer on a pre-trip service project locally with your team, and engage fully in the Raider Alt Break drug and alcohol-free service trip March 25-31. Trip fees are billed to your student account. Students may receive 2-4 of upper division academic credit upon arrangement (optional).
We will be holding two "info sessions" on Wednesday January 17th:
- 12:30-1pm, SU 319
- 5:30-7pm, Greensprings Lobby
