Kacham ntai oleng Unity Village. Back from my 6th time co-leading an Alternative Winter Break trip to Samburu, Kenya for Colorado State University. Any trip is difficult to explain over the course of many hours, much less the caption of a single photo. Here are a few of the women and their children who never cease to humble and inspire me. Their generosity, laughter, tenacity, strength and love are unparalleled. I am so appreciative to have spent another few weeks learning from and laughing with them.
@carnegiemellon ’s #alternativebreak #crowdfunding campaign kicks off today! Support CMU student orgs who are raising funds for trips to do good around the world. Help them change lives, including their own. Learn more & donate at link in bio! #iamcmu #carnegiemellon #altbreak #givingback
When you put 21 goofballs together who oddly find giving back to the community fun what do you get? 800+ hours of combined service, a transformed warehouse ready to serve those in need, an organization with a refreshed outlook, and a bunch of memorable stories to look back and reflect on. I am THANKFUL for the team of leaders I worked with this semester to make this trip what it was, Ashby House and their willingness to collaborate, and most importantly my kick ass group of new close friends. #AlternativeBreak #AshbyHouse
And they’re off! 11 FSU students are headed to the Selma Center for Nonviolence, Truth, & Reconciliation for this weekend’s #FSAB #alternativebreak #MLK trip!

I had a great time helping out at the Good Food Project #alternativebreak
Got the opportunity to volunteer in St Augustine with a great group of girls, so happy to have gotten to explore the city and help make someone’s days a little better with a new roof. 🏠 #APtakesaugustine #alternativebreak
Betas stay working ya'll! We want to give a Shoutout to Brother #111 Sal 'Vigilante' Delgado on achieving one of our pillars during Winter break. Bro.

I just finished up with a great group of volunteers from the University of Indiana, Alternative Break Program! They stayed with us for one week, knocking out prosperity interviews for the women we work with in Cape Coast. 👏👏👏 For all of them, it was their first time to Ghana. We may even have a few of them return for a longer stay this summer! 💛🇬🇭💛 . . . #Ghana #Capecoast #Africa #globalmamas #volunteer #liveabroad #volunteerabroad #instatravel #travelgram #iu #alternativebreak #abp #giveback #4change #socialchange #thankyou #volunteering #makeadifference #dogood

If you were thinking of writing me to ask how you can "help" Haiti or to recommend an organization you can volunteer with- DON'T. I'd like to politely ask you to assess Haiti's needs vs your skill set before you embarrass yourself. Haiti has enough @barbiesavior who couldn't quite afford a ticket to #Africa but still needed IG pics with cute black orphans so they picked Haiti instead. Haiti needs medical professionals (especially those who can provide rare SURGERIES), engineers, electricians, urban planners, waste and water management experts, climate resiliency experts, contractors and architects with experience in seismic proof and infrastructure👱, Creole-speaking trauma experts, Creole-speaking educators, etc. If you don't see your skills listed here and no one asked you for your help, for the love of God, stay home with your hideous matching "Omaha Saves Haiti" shirts and tell your church group and #AlternativeBreak group to do the same!😵 Haiti doesn't need your mediocrity and people of color shouldn't be expected to accept subpar assistance to boost your ego. The damage that has been done to Haitian communities, religion, and culture by inexperienced and imperialistic missionaries and white saviors (and their black disciples) is irreparable. Are there any other expertise you'd add to this list based on your experience in Haiti or the developing world? #wokearoundtheworld

Couple of awesome guys that I got to hangout and do volunteer work with in Indiana for a week. #alternativebreak
Several Lions are venturing out with @csa_lmu on #AlternativeBreak trips to places like Peru, Morocco and Arizona to learn about issues such as human rights, immigration, female empowerment and the regeneration of the rainforest! ✈️ There are opportunities throughout the year for students to join these trips, expanding their hearts and perspectives. 🤗 ➡️Learn more: http://ow.ly/Q4Cy30hm0FS (link also on our Facebook page!)
Our brothers Hannah and Rilee also went on an Alternative Break! @hannahrose13x worked at Safe Harbor, a womens and children’s aid shelter for those that are trying to get out of domestic violence situation, in Greenville, SC. @rileeharris13 break was Natural disaster restoration located in New Orleans. Great job 💜💛 #CMU #Alternativebreak #FireUp #phisigmapi #brothers #cmichab #cmichabweekends
This is the only picture I took from this past week, featuring these wonderful women whom I have learned so much from. This past week I spent mentoring youth in a juvenile detention center... this experience changed me not only in perspective but in passion. The youth at the center taught me so much about the lives they’ve led and what has driven their choices and brought them down the path that has brought them to DeKalb RYDC. They have taught me about perseverance most notably... they have grown up experiencing hardships I could never imagine, but they have massive talent, intelligence, and happiness; and unfortunately they grew up in an environment that corrupted them and primed them for the decisions that brought them to the DJJ. And the reality is some or even most of them are not much different from us, the thing that separates them and us is they got caught and we have not. No matter where my education and career takes me, I will be dedicating my life to advocating for at risk youth. I am forever thankful for this Buck I Serv trip and Medici Project for changing my life. Mark Twain once said “the two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why,” and on this trip I found out why. #alternativebreak #mediciproject #djj #juvenilejusticereform #buckiserv
Our final project of the week was to serve at a produce delivery and distribution at @projecthospitality. Thanks to Project Hospitality and @nycfoodbank for doing all the heavy lifting and allowing us to participate in your community efforts.
Visited the Postcards 9/11 memorial on Staten Island. The whole experience was moving....the etched profile of each Staten Island resident who died in the attacks, the striking view of the new tower on the skyline....but the piece that brought on the tears was this railing. The names of people who have died from9/11 complications and injuries since the attacks are added to the memorial railing. Seeing those blank tiles waiting for more names was both a reminder of more sadness AND healing that still needs to be done in the future.
Huge s/o the #alternativebreak crew from @indianastateuniversity you guys are a fun, diverse group of individuals and it was our pleasure to host you. You all made such significant contributions in such short time, thank you for giving our little desert oasis so much needed TLC. #bethechange #indianastateuniversity #alternativebreak2017 #holidaybreak #payitforward #awb2017 #communitygarden #repyourorg

Dusty, sore, and definitely out of our comfort zone but I’d say it’s pretty worth it #AlternativeBreak #habitatforhumanity #Mississippi
Thank you to @healthierNF resident leaders Brian + Evelyn for taking us on a walking tour of Main Street. Hearing your stories allowed us to understand more about the work of the collaborative + how all community members can come together to formulate solutions that work for the community. 👣🚦// 📍#niagarafalls , #newyork • • • #buffalostate #buffstate #alternativebreak #alternativebreaks #learningfromACTIVEcitizens #residentleaders #communityaction #action #walkthefalls #activecitizens #service #volunteer #getinvolved

Twelve @cmuniversity college students are here volunteering at CYDC this week as part of their alternative winter break! They are providing much-needed help to our staff during this busy holiday season. We love to see young people performing such a valuable service! #alternativebreak #fireupchips #mondaymotivation #centralmichiganuniversity #ChipsGiveBack
This year I decided to spend my birthday giving back to the community of Niagara Falls. I could be doing other things like getting lit back at home, but I’d rather do something that I am passionate about... #ProjectGreenSpace #CreateAHealthierNiagaraFallsCollaborative #AlternativeBreak
Our Fighting Poverty, Creating Opportunity service trip in Niagara Falls has been collaborating with @healthierNF and resident leaders since Saturday afternoon on a variety of projects. Tonight the team is hosting a deliberative dialogue on poverty in the community and sharing info about Community Currency. 🐯💵 • • • #buffalostate #alternativebreaks #buffstate #service #alternativebreak #buffalostateab #volunteer #socialjustice #activecitizens 📍#niagarafalls #residentleaders

I had the most AMAZING time last week with this group on #alternativebreak ! We got the opportunity to help Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. As my first alternative break I will always remember this experience and the wonderful people I got to work with.
