Hillel/City Year Alternative Break 2012: Serving to Make a Difference
Join other service-minded students from around the country in either Los Angeles or Miami. This trip is a partnership between Hillel and City Year and will provide an opportunity to stretch beyond the everyday by coming together through hands-on service, team building and the exploration of social justice and Judaism.
Days will be spent doing volunteer work which may include, but is not limited to, building, painting, tutoring children and serving meals. Participants should be prepared for intense days of hands-on service and be open to experiential learning as a means to increase knowledge about socio-economic and social justice issues.
Following a communal dinner, activities will be planned, and will include campus discussions, speakers, and sightseeing. The week ends with a relaxing, inspiring and restful Shabbat.
The City Year Alternative Break is a campus based experience. Only students at participating campuses each week are invited to participate. Please check the document below for the list of campuses.
