Weekend Service Trip: focus on poverty
[SIGN UP BY OCT.13] In 2015, nearly 43.1 million people lived in poverty in the United States. Along with poverty, issues of food security, housing, and health can further push away economic stability. Participants will examine the multiple intersections of how poverty affects an individual, as well as engage in discussions to better understand how policies and root causes affect poverty.
On a VT Engage weekend immersion trip, you'll serve a cause that matters to you, dive more deeply into social justice issues through reflection, and meet other students passionate about questioning and serving.
The cost of the trip is $30, which covers transportation, food, and housing. Need-based scholarships are available. All applicants will be considered.
