Alternative Spring Break: Urban Plunge will take place the week of March 10-14 right here in Fort Wayne.
Coordinated by United Way of Allen County, specifically for University of St. Francis (USF), Ivy Tech and IPFW students, the program will run Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Students will spend the week working at and learning about our local nonprofits. These agencies provide services in United Way’s four focus areas: education, health, income and basic needs. Participants will reflect and discuss daily experiences, and will be asked to consider commitments to social action and justice issues which impact Allen County, the nation and the global community.
Space is limited to 20 students and all costs will be covered except for transportation to and from Ivy Tech each morning and afternoon.
Applications can be found on www.unitedwayallencounty.org/asb and are due by Monday, February 24. For more information, please contact Debra Barrick at 260.481.5471 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
