We understand that the school year may not be an ideal time for all students to explore their passion for service. Winter or Summer of Service opportunities provide a different timeline than traditional SBEs with preparation and travel in one semester. So whether you're studying abroad, play a sport, or just want to use your break in the service of others; these provide another option to serve! 



Disaster Relief Experience

Timing: December

Focus: Disaster relief & recovery

Large scale natural disasters are becoming common place in our times. When disaster strikes, there are many people to aid in the rebuilding of homes and lives. You will have the opportunity to work with nonprofit organizations committed to shrinking the time between disaster and recovery; helping people get back home. 

Cities of Hope

Timing: June

Focus: Urban Poverty & immigration 

People often think of these communities as vacation destinations, but what lies underneath is more than meets the eye. Addressing the issues facing the Latino community (especially children), refugees and people who are experiencing homelessness are vital to the community's health. In collaboration with Holy Cross Ministries, you will visit, volunteer and learn from non-profits on the ground working for change and bringing hope.
