Each spring, Pace University’s Center of Community Action and Research leads the Alternative Spring Break program, which is designed to “provide valuable service to affected communities while giving participants the opportunity to have impact on a local level, while learning about the regional/national/global contexts.” This year, 16 participants will be given the opportunity to put their energies into helping rebuild the Rockaways, a community in Queens that is still working to recover following the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Anyone interested in participating is required to attend at least one of the following information session:
Thursday, February 2
Civic E319 (NYC Campus), Miller Hall 16 (Pleasantville Campus)
Wednesday, February 8 (PLV)
163 William Street, Room 1520 (NYC), Dyson 218 (PLV)
The dates for the trip are Monday, March 13th-Thursday, March 16th.
