Two groups of St. Norbert College students will visit Chicago, Ill., from March 14 to March 20, as part of the college's TRIPS alternative break service program.

One of the two groups, consisting of eleven students, will take part in the Urban Youth program, one of St. Norbert College's longest-running TRIPS experiences. Groups of St. Norbert College students have been traveling to Chicago for the program for more than 25 years, working with St. Benedict the African School. Students will stay at the Amate House and interact with young people who have committed to post-graduation service.

Participants in the Urban Youth trip are: Nicole Zellner (New Franken, Wis.), Quincy Kissack (Rock Springs, Wis.)--Trip Leaders

Karl Schloegel (Menominee, Mich.), Fiona Hehir (Hickory Hills, Ill.), Kieran Ruane (Lemont, Ill.), Brittany Buysse (Green Bay, Wis.), Trisha Wilquet (Seymour, Wis.), Molly Kellogg (West Bend, Wis.), Elizabeth Jazwiec (Elgin, Ill.), Alyssa Peik (Chilton, Wis.), Symphoni Sanders (Chicago, Ill.)--Trip Participants

The other group, consisting of six students, will take part in the Immigration TRIPS program. During the trip, participants will learn about issues related to immigration and undocumented individuals, and participate in service projects impacting the lives of immigrants.

Participants in the Immigration trip are: Holly Nickerson (Falls City, Tex.), Caitlin Green (Green Bay, Wis.)--Trip Leaders

Melissa Curiel Nunez (Green Bay, Wis.), Mercedes Diaz Gracida (Green Bay, Wis.), Ruby Robles (Green Bay, Wis.) Christian Madrigal (Milwaukee, Wis.)--Trip Participants

TRIPS (an acronym for Turning Responsibility Into Powerful Service) is an alternative break program organized by the Sturzl Center for Community Service and Learning at St. Norbert College. It is designed to give students the opportunity to put their beliefs into action through service and solidarity with various communities. TRIPS challenges students to participate in a week or more of service in areas throughout the United States and the world.
