Spring Break Immersion Trips

Spring Break Immersion Trips


Community engagement Ð to join forces with
others to make the world a better place; to contribute your knowledge and experiences
to better your community. Missouri State University students with a
passion for making a difference stepped out of the classroom and into the community by participating
in a spring break immersion trip. These Bears worked with leaders in communities
across the country Ð from New Orleans to Springfield to Chicago and beyond Ð to learn
about social issues, like poverty, homelessness and urban development, firsthand. They planted gardens, taught children, rebuilt
homes, served meals to the homeless, distributed food to those in need and lent a helping hand
to nonprofit organizations. They helped others find resources, build skills
and prepare for change. They broke down barriers. They built connections. They became
part of the community.
