Through support from the Pro Humanitate Institute, students have many unique opportunities to volunteer throughout the United States and internationally.
Students initiated the establishment of many of the service trips that we offer. These trips provide students with the opportunity to act globally and to understand the challenges facing people living both in other parts of the world and in the United States. Participants are selected through an application process several months before the trip. The group, which includes a faculty/staff adviser for the international trips, holds weekly meetings in preparation to serve the community where they will travel. Upon return, students are expected to share their experiences with the campus through presentations and informal discussion. The cost of trips are $350 for WAB trips and varies for international trips depending on travel costs. For more information or to receive an application, please e-mail Cazandra Rebollar, firstname.lastname@example.org.
WAB organizes annual service-related spring break trips for students. In the past, students have traveled to the Everglades, New Orleans, Chicago, and Appalachia. All of our WAB trips are organized around a social justice issue area like environmental conservation, affordable housing, or food security. You can read about all of the trips below. All trips are $350 with the exception of the Staycation which is $100. The deadline for applications is January 24th.
