Seminars on Thursday, October 26, will provide information on the Alternative Spring Break program, which offers UWindsor students a new way to engage in community service.
Co-ordinator Simon du Toit of the Student Success and Leadership Centre bills it as an opportunity to give back.
“Alternative Spring Break is an intense and rewarding leadership opportunity you will not forget,” he says. “I am thrilled to be able to offer this to students.”
Teams will take part in one of two five-day projects:
- visiting the Walpole Island First Nation west of Wallaceburg, or
- integrating a dramatic performance into the Coldest Night fundraiser for the Downtown Mission.
These experiences will involve a volunteer commitment starting in November, but the peak of the experience will occur during February’s Reading Week, Dr. du Toit says.
Attendees may choose one of four one-hour seminars Thursday in the Oak Room, Vanier Hall, at 2, 3, 4, or 5 p.m. Learn more on the program website.
