Alternative Spring Break in Puerto Rico
What Is TWU's Alternative Spring Break?
The Alternative Spring Break program gives TWU students the opportunity to engage in service projects across the globe and impact the lives of those in need. Through partnerships with local organizations, TWU students immerse themselves with new cultures while doing hands-on volunteer work to improve local communities. These experiences challenge them to think critically and compassionately while taking meaningful actions to support a greater good. The skills, connections and growth the students make through the program are life changing and help further the mission of the University to truly be a Campus with a Heart.
Where Is This Year's Trip?
TWU students will head to San Juan, Puerto Rico to work with Peninsula de Cantera - a local organization focused on the disaster relief efforts from Hurricane Maria in 2017. Students will be work in highly impacted areas such as parks, community centers and gardens to assist with the upkeep and restoration of high sustainable areas. TWU students will also lead educational workshops with children and elderly populations to connect and assist with needs.
