Alternative spring break mission statement

Alternative Spring Break Mission Statement

The purpose of the alternative spring break is to learn by intentional living and enhancing the students’ cultural and intellectual perspective through purposeful learning experiences within diverse communities. Individuals will be challenged through team service oriented projects within different cultures alongside learning about their history. Students will gain a clearer understanding of their individual strengths and increase cultural awareness from day to day living through interactions and personal challenges. Students will become more culturally aware, physically and mentally challenged, and grow within themselves and in relationships with their fellow teammates.


Learning goals learning outcomes

Learning Goals/Learning Outcomes

- Students will become better aware of missions opportunities available within the United States through American Indian Reservation visitations and community building efforts

- Students will have learned about the southwest region of the United States - its history, nature, and culture

- By interacting with fellow students, American Indian Reservation staff, children, and other organization staff, students will have learned interpersonal skills on multiple levels

Testimonial

Testimonial

Testimonial from CLU’s Service Learning Alternative Spring Break to El Salvador:

“Writing is my passion so I'm writing again tonight. Well, today we began building the homes. I think that I'll never forget this experience because all the people want to work together to bring peace to the world, or at least to this community.

The families that live here are very generous and it's a pleasure to meet them. Like Breana, I really liked talking with the little kids. They're so cute!

The things I didn't like about the day include the insects, especially a bee that gave me a horrible sting in my hand. OW! I hope it doesn't affect my ability to help with the building process tomorrow or during the week. It really hurts.

It's exciting that I can be here with CLU. I didn't know anybody in the group before yesterday with the exception of Pastor Melissa, but now I feel like they are members of my family.

Ok now I want to sleep because tomorrow will be a long day and I will have to be well-rested.

Until soon! The next time I write in the diary will probably be in English! Sorry if I'm making tons of grammatical errors!”
