For the Center for Service Learning's 2011 Alternative Winter Break, students traveled to the Dominican Republic to Orphanage Outreach (click to access their website) to volunteer at the Hope of a Child Orphanage providing education and opportunities to orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children. This was our first international Alternative Break Trip!
The students were given time each day to create a lesson plan for English class which they would teach in the classrooms. The kids had a lot of energy, and our students had a blast playing with them and teaching!
The 2011 winter break trip was a great experience. Our thanks to the dedicated students and advisors who participated!
