Alternative Spring Break
The mission of this program is to provide an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in a community-based service-learning program over spring break. SVC hopes that this experience will allow participants to become more thoughtful and engaged citizens who will continue to work for social change.
For Spring 2017, we will be traveling to Chicago, Illinois. We will be working with the topic of inequality and how different identities intersect. We hope to look at food insecurity, legal help, police relations, and many more areas. The trip will run during UCSC’s Spring Break.
We will travel to Chicago, IL by plane. Airfare, transportation, housing, food, and excursions will be covered with a donation of no more than $350 from each student. Fundraising options are available.
- Applicant must be a UC Santa Cruz student in good academic and judicial standing
- Attend a series of meetings before the trip
- Have a valid non-expired identification (driver’s license, state ID, passport)
- Complete trip reflection/evaluation packet after the trip
