YASC Trip to Nicaragua

November 27, 2011 - 9:58am
Come join us this March 10th-17th, 2012 as we fly into the capital city of Managua then travel inland to the vibrant town of Matagalpa in the coffee growing district. From this base we will travel up gravel roads past fields of corn, beans and coffee into the rain forest to impoverished communities on the mountain side. El Castillo is the second village up the mountain road and while it is the site of this year's March program by YASC, we will also invite the people of the adjacent communities to join us. These small remote villages lack clean water, medical care and educational opportunities - we need to help change this! Act quickly, because space is running out.  For more information, click on the link below.Nicaragua 2012 - Main Page

Alternative Spring Break

October 23, 2011 - 6:07pm
Lot's of college students associate Spring Break with fun, vacations and perhaps a bit of hedonism.  That has been changing at colleges across the country, where Alternative Spring Break programs have encouraged service.  One of the great aspects of Yale Service Corps trips has been been the participation of current Yale students.  By tapping into the spirit of current Yalies, alumni get a great sense of what current students care about . . .  and we get a chance to share Yale's history of service with younger generations.

Click below to read about what some other colleges are doing for Alternative Spring Break, by clicking on the college links below:

University of Virginia  

University of Illinois

The University of Michigan

Georgetown

The University of Texas

Harvard

Columbia

Deloitte also sponsors an alternative spring break option through the United Way.
