Moore Offers Alternative Spring Break for Students

Moore College of Art & Design is giving students the opportunity to make a difference over Spring Break. Through the Student Services department, six students will take part in an Alternative Spring Break experience March 5 - 9, 2012.

The alternative spring break involves students participating in three to four days of community service at different Philadelphia organizations. Students will stay in the residence halls and participate in team building activities in the evening.

Students will work with the Hunger Coalition, preparing and serving lunch at one of their kitchens, visit Ready Willing and Able to help with a city clean up, work with Mural Arts where they will help promote and advertise the program and then sketch work to assist in mural preparation and visit the Career Wardrobe to sort clothes and assist customers.

Many students who return from an alternative break experience consider it a life changing event, said Emily Johnson, director of student activities & facility rentals. Alternative break alumni from other schools report an increase in their campus involvement, a commitment to continued community service, and more.
