TRIPS (Turning Responsibility into Powerful Service) is
an alternative break service program that gives students the opportunity to put
into action their values, convictions, and religious beliefs through
service. We are rooted in the ideal that service-learning and reflection
can be a medium for personal growth and life changing experiences.
We challenge you to participate in a week of
personal, intellectual. social and spiritual growth through life changing
service and solidarity with some of the world's most vulnerable people. We provide our participants with; leadership skills, new perspectives, and a
broader understanding of the local, national, and global communities of which
we are all a part. Along the way, you may experience a new culture, discover
how to make positive changes to yourselves and our world, and have fun while doing
it! The best way to understand is to try it out for yourself.
TRIPS info night is Sept. 11. Applications due Sept. 16.
