This year we currently have one winter break service trip. To apply for it and to learn more please go here.
Last year we sent approximately 30 students on three different alternative break trips. For a week in January and a week in March students will work together to help others by serving a warm meal to individuals in need or helping to build a home for a deserving family. Below is a little bit more information about each site:
A.St Francis Inn, http://stfrancisinn.org/ Focus on Hunger and Homelessness Location: Philadelphia, PA
B. Habitat for Humanity, http://www.habitat.org/youthprograms/collegiate-challenge Affordable Housing Location: Burmingham, AL and Monroe, NC

As a student who would be representing St. Lawrence University in the community and traveling to do community service, I agree to abide by all St. Lawrence University policies and to represent the university in a positive manner. I also, authorize SLU Volunteer Services staff to verify that I am in good academic and social standard here at St. Lawrence University.- All students will be ask to sign an agreement that states this.
