Students at Hofstra University are volunteering their time this week in a variety of Alternative Spring Break programs, engaging in community service and making a difference in the lives of others.
Student volunteers in D.C. are participating in the Youth Services Opportunities Project; a group in New Orleans is taking part in the Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge; and students in Kentucky are involved in the Christian Appalachian Project with the Newman Club and Catholic Campus Ministries. In addition, students participating in Stay-Cation, remaining on Long Island and NYC over the break, will be engaging in service projects with the Mary Brennan INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network), Homes for the Homeless, Rebuilding Together NYC, and at Caleb Smith State Park Preserve, from Monday to Thursday, March 28 to 31.
Alternative Spring Break programs are open to all Hofstra students and sponsored by the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement.
