Alternate Spring Break

I don't think I'll sign up but I thought this was a pretty cool idea…

Alternative Spring Breaks 2007 : “Be the

Instead of hitting the beach, you (Western
students) have the chance to participate in an intensive, hands-on service
project during Reading Week 2007, organized by The Centre for New Students and
Western Residence Life (Housing and Ancillary Services). You may choose to build
affordable housing with Habitat for Humanity in the US, work with orphaned and
abandoned children in the Dominican Republic, or choose 1 of the newly designed
opportunities in Mexico (working with the indigenous Mexican people and culture)
or London (with an array of agencies throughout the week)!

You will
participate in pre- trip meetings, team-building activates and fundraising
initiatives in the months leading up the trip departure. A university staff
member and 2 student co-trip leaders facilitate both the service project and the
intentional reflection activities during the trips. Each year, students return
from these trips re-energized about their academic study, passionate about their
choice of career and eager to engage in service in the London community! Student
and Co-Trip leader applications are due Friday November 3, 2006! Detailed trip
and application information can be found online at Questions can be emailed to
