Spring Break Service Trips Impact BVU Students

Over 40 Buena Vista University students participated in four AWOL (Alternative Week of Off-site Learning) trips during spring break, enabling them to volunteer their time and service to a variety of people and programs.

AWOL has sent over 500 volunteers and completed nearly 18,000 hours of service worldwide, furthering its mission to immerse students in different cultures, heighten social awareness and advocate life-long social action through service on a local, regional and international level.

This year’s trips focused on children and poverty in Montego Bay, Jamaica; disaster relief and clean-up efforts in Greeley, Colo.; environmental research and animal rescue in Costa Rica; and hunger and health outreach in Staten Island, N.Y.
