Spring Break Outreach (SBO)
Spring Break Outreach is a week-long service immersion program that takes place in eight different sites throughout the eastern United States. Groups meet together in the months prior to the trip to learn about the host community, discuss service and social justice issues, and grow as a team. After returning from their experience, participants are involved in a formal reflection on their service and a critical reflection of the social justice issues they encountered. For more information about SBO, go to CCSJ’s website.
