Last week, I had the opportunity to volunteer with the Saint Bernard Project in New Orleans through #uvmasb , helping build opportunity housing in a community still in recovery almost 15 years after Hurricane Katrina. Shout out to this amazing group of UVM students and thank you to New Orleans for the hospitality (and of course all the Beignets). #sbpdeslonde
Couldn’t be prouder of these amazing individuals, and so thankful that they made my first site leading experience so memorable #round5 #uvmasb
Somebody, call OSHA. West Virginia was 🔥 #uvmasb #timisdon #instauvm
So incredibly grateful that I had the opportunity to spend the past 9 days in New Orleans with these 8 amazing, hilarious humans. We spent a week working hard to help build a house with @sbpusa , and also built wonderful friendships and unforgettable memories along the way. I'll never forget this extraordinary experience ❤️ #UVMASB #finnesse #sbpdeslonde
Great week, great work, great people #uvmasb
Happy Spring Break Loves!!! How was everyone’s break? #uvmasb
This beautiful three bedroom one and a half bathroom home in which we had the honor to sleep, eat, and conquer in is now on sale for only $5,000,000! A breathtaking view of our lovely earth where you can feel the sand between your toes and the wind on your face is within a minute of walking distance, but make sure to be aware of Virginia Dare 👻 (washer and dryer is included too!) #uvmasb #alternativebreaks #instauvm

We were supposed to have two houses but this other volunteer group stole our other one (taking the mattresses with them) the next morning we were planning on taking a picture with them (despite the crime they committed) but they seemed to have disappeared just like the lost colony so instead here’s a picture of their house or really should we say our house #uvmasb #alternativebreaks #instauvm
These souvenirs are very spe-shell to us #iconic #uvmasb #alternativebreaks #instauvm
We’re missing Duck Donuts even after our second trip but always gotta remember to recycle! #uvmasb #alternativebreaks #instauvm
After doing a bit of service in the morning, boss man Michael told us we were done for today and that we should explore the rest of the island and so we did! What a wonderful day at our service project #uvmasb #alternativebreaks #instauvm

Service, smiles, new friends 🐴 and learning in new communities are all part of Alternative Spring Break. For the past week, 100 Catamounts volunteered with #uvmasb at 11 sites as far away as New Orleans. 📸: @michael_j_chan ‘19; @covenbrian ‘20; @nikki_christine ‘19 #instauvm

Participant Spotlight: @irelandjudge 🇮🇪 Say hello 👋🏼 to Ireland! Ireland is a sophomore studying psychology 🧠! Most of the music downloaded on her phone 📱 is Ed Sheeran, and she can drive our van 🚐 like a pro! She whips around the NJ Turnpike like she chasing down her mans 🚶🏼‍♀️. Her fave part working on the site 🔨 is learning how to do new things and the opportunity 🙌🏼 to do those things in real life 🌎. She SLAYS 😵 on the site. Say hello to Ireland! #uvmasb #uvmboredonbreak #timisdon @universityofvermont

so our journey begins with a special highlight on this beautiful kween , @crothers.nicole , on her 20th birthday w/ her OJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How cute!!!!!!!! Today we volunteered for the first time at Project Cure and it was FUN, we met Marty, Dave and Danielle, all equally wonderful. Goat yoga was discussed and there are dogs who will be joining us at work so you could say it’s only going to get better. We also learned that Catamounts are extinct but they also still exist. More to come, stay tuned #uvmasb

The soil in south florida is calcium rich because of massive limestone deposits and has very little organic matter. These lil bromeliads sure are resourceful! #soil #asbfarms #uvmasb #uvmasb2017

Cincinnati was a blast! 🎉There were tears, there were laughs, and there were many deep conversations. I learned a lot and met many strong, and incredible individuals. I will take these lessons and their words, and carry them with me for the rest of my life. I will never forget how much you challenged, and changed me Cincinnati, Ohio 🏬🚃Much love from your friends here at groovy uv 🌳🌈✌🏽Also, gonna miss seeing these weirdos everyday (don't be a stranger and holla at your girl)! Till next time! 🚐🗺🛣 #uvmasb #uvmasb2017

It's hard to find people nowadays that are so strong and motivated in life, even after so many tragedies are thrown their way. It was an honor to meet Miss Marguerite as well as help give her a home she deserves. There are many people still suffering from the after effects of hurricane Katrina, but everyone can do something to help! Fundraise, donate, or go out there and build some houses! You will change somebody's life for the better, and it truly is the best experience. #uvmasb #sbp #nola

"600 lbs. of trash picked up, 1 mile of invasive species cleared, 6 nights of camping and 1 solid day off" UVM Alternative Spring Breakers do some wonderful things! #uvmasb
