Spring Break Alternative

The office sponsors an annual Spring Break Alternative Trip, which took students and faculty in 2017 to the Transformation Village, a parcel of land that houses United Global Outreach (UGO), a nonprofit that focuses on the Bithlo, Florida transformation effort. Each day, volunteers learned about teamwork and reconstruction of communities through cleaning and performing maintenance with high school students in the area.

Cultural Learning Tour

The office coordinates an annual trip with the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to organize a Cultural Learning Tour. In 2017 they traveled to the Dominican Republic. Juniata College students worked with students from Amigos de Guanin to construct a well to provide water for three neighborhoods, and learned an incredible amount about sustainable water production in the Dominican Republic.
