The Merry Green Marvel Bus visited Viterbo College yesterday to rally some students for a service trip down river to New Orleans in January to practice the call of St Francis by planting trees and helping build homes for low income families. After some coaxing with hot cider on a nippy day over 70 students signed up! Pictured is A. who was the last to sign up. An amazing young woman who loves learning new languages, is working with the nuns and their organic green house and farm and plans to travel to Spain and Portugal in the Spring to sing with her school choir. She has a special affinity to the grass hopper. Step up, Get Involved, Realize your Privelage and Give Back!#merrygreenmarvel #getoutofyourbubble #volunteer #servicelearning #volunteerneworleans #wetlandrestoration #serveyourcountry #giveback #altspringbreak #makeadifference #youronepreciouslife #experientialeducation #stfrancis

When you make a purchase from PIDCrafts, your money goes directly to the artisans, as well as back into out many programs. Every purchase makes a difference in the lives of those we serve!
Left on my own - early morning post to make up for my absence. Two jobs are keeping me too busy to think.
Throwback with my Portland gals 💕
National volunteer week - "I chose to spend my spring break volunteering at Lake Mead because my dad has always inspired me to be outdoors and give back to the earth. He would love to be out here experiencing everything that I’ve been doing and all the ways I’ve been able to help out". Quote by Haley Foster, Kent State University #altspringbreak #NationalVolunteerWeek #FindYourPark
Lake Mead has hosted Alternative Spring Break groups for the past four years. This year, 14 students from Kent State University came to learn some of the ways National Park Service staff protect our natural and cultural resources. They documented petroglyphs, assisted at the park’s native plant nursery and pulled invasive Sahara Mustard. The volunteers completed daily projects that would have taken 2 or 3 available resource management employees’ weeks to complete on their own. "I am so glad that I signed up for this Alternative Spring Break trip - It allowed me to continue my education on many topics that I've not thought about for quite a while. Everyone we spoke with from the park has been absolutely wonderful". Quote by Amanda Colucci, Kent State University #altspringbreak #NationalVolunteerWeek #FindYourPark

This year we hosted our first Alternative Spring Break! We had five awesome students from Appalachian State University, North Carolina A&T State University, High Point University and UNC Greensboro. - Each morning students participated in a service project. They cleaned up a stream at Barber Park. Helped out at Out of the Garden Project. Sorted items The Salvation Army store. Worked in the BackPack Beginnings warehouse. Lastly, they helped paint a wall at the Family Success Center. - In the afternoon, students got a behind the scenes look at cool local businesses like Forge Greensboro, Center for Creative Leadership, HQ Greensboro, International Civil Rights Center & Museum and Revolution Mill. This was an exciting week for the students and for United Way. - Thank you to the students who decided to spend their spring break with us. Thank you to all of our service sites and businesses for joining us for our first LoveGSO Alternative Spring Break! Another big thank you to FOX8 for awesome news coverage of the week! . . . #LiveUnited #UnitedWayGSO #LoveGSO #GSO #SoGSO #SpringBreak #AltSpringBreak #Volunteer #Service #GiveLocalHelpLocal #EndPoverty #SalvationArmy #ParksandRec #HQGreensboro #RevMill #InstaGood #AppState #UNCG #NCAT #HPU

Today we had the pleasure of hosting some students from #USC for their #AlternativeSpringBreak . It was warming to see their genuine enthusiasm, compassion, and appreciation for service, especially with the rain. It really brought joy to María Ana to have you all on her farm. A big thanks to @catholic_trojan and your group for coming to ALBA to learn, serve, and grow in faith in your trip through Monterey County. #AltSpringBreak #SalinasValley #EastOfEden #Monterey #LocalAndSustainable #FreshAndGreen #ServiceLearning #LaudatoSi

Tater donuts, many many garbage bags of leaves and sunshine. Also... Where's the FUNK, GURG? #springbreak #altspringbreak
Hearing about all the snow that the northeast is getting and I am NOT envious. I am happy to clean kitchens, pull weeds, and mess with moon jellies instead #springbreak #altspringbreak

Even after totaling 24+ hours in a van (~1580 miles), it was well worth eventually getting out and experiencing tolerable weather. But hey, at least we made it to Mississippi Pictured: Alabama is so flat #springbreak #altspringbreak
