Alternative Spring Break Trip Plans Set

Alternative Spring Break Trip Plans Set

This school year’s Alternative Spring Break trip is set. A group of UWM students will travel Asheville, NC, from March 16-23.

In all, 30 UWM students will take the trip, gaining a better understanding of Appalachian history, culture, and communities. Participants will engage in service at various non-profit agencies (focusing on issues of veteran rehabilitation, hunger and homelessness, and environmental sustainability) while enhancing their leadership skills. In addition to service, participants will have opportunities to explore Asheville and learn about the unique history of the region.

The cost to students is $350 and that cost includes their lodging, transportation, and most meals. If your student is interested in applying, they can do so online.
