Alternative Spring Break Philadelphia: Stay here and serve your city.
Campus Philly and 20 local college students have decided against spending tons of money on airfare, hotels, and tacky souvenirs this Spring Break. Instead, they are planning to stay in the City that they know and love to focus on helping their local community.
Campus Philly has teamed up with four great non-profits to create eight, day-long service projects for enthusiastic student volunteers. Each project will have an active service and educational component, for a totally hands and minds-on experience. The week will conclude with a reflective leadership retreat where each project and the issue areas surrounding each project will be discussed. Of course, because it is Spring break, time is set aside each day to unwind, giving students the opportunity to explore both historic and cultural offerings within the City of Brotherly Love.
