The CVC is about to embark on its second Alternative Spring Break trip (ASB) to New York City! During the week, students will be volunteering in different soup kitchens each day and reflecting upon their experience at night. In addition to group discussions, each student will be blogging. To prepare for this trip, the students have participated in seminars about social class and set goals to keep in mind throughout the trip.
Colby ASB is free for students to ensure that any person, regardless of his/her socio-economic status, has the opportunity to come. The trip was entirely student fundraised through on campus events and an online donation site.
If you would like to donate to help fund the trip, please give online at http://colbyasb2011.chipin.com/colby-college-alternative-spring-break-2011
