Atlanta Service Trip 2016

Community Service Trips

Take your service on the road! Our office offers alternative break trips to students who are interested in serving in other communities. UNCW students travel with members of the professional staff to areas of need for a week, increasing their reach to positively impact a regional, national, and global community. In the past, our student groups have worked with women's and children's homes, shelters, and rebuilding projects

Spring Break 2017 - Atlanta, GA

Join us over Spring Break as we serve at The City of Refuge in Atlanta, Georgia. City of Refuge is the largest homeless shelter in Georgia. It is also a place "Where Good Works" to effect positive, lasting, meaningful, tangible, transformational change in the lives it touches- whoever they may be and from wherever they may come, rich or poor. Learn more about City of Refuge.

Not sure what to expect?

Eleven UNCW students with Assistant Director, Erin Williamson, traveled to City of Refuge for Spring Break 2016. The City of Refuge is a non-profit organization dedicated to community development efforts that lead to the stability and sustainability of the local community. We spent afternoons and evenings participating in activities at the shelter, including the after-school care program for children, arts and crafts, karaoke, and meals. We also explored Atlanta, visiting the Museum of Human and Civil Rights, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, and Sweet Auburn Market. We ended our days with meaningful group reflection about our experience.
