SBO (Spring Break Outreach)
Spring Break Outreach is a week-long service experience at one of a selection of sites throughout the eastern United States. Approximately 120 students, faculty and staff participate in Spring Break Outreach, meeting together in small groups during the weeks prior to the trip to learn about the host community, discuss service and social justice issues and raise funds for the trip. The week of service involves a variety of activities; participants learn about the history and culture of the region in addition to completing tasks needed by the host site. All participants make a commitment to live simply during their week of service; this often means staying in sleeping bags in community centers and churches and preparing and eating economical meals. During and following the experience, participants are involved in formal reflection on their service and critical analysis of the social justice issues they encounter.
