Canton Service Learning Trip 2014

Dates: Spring Break 2014

Trip Leader:

Cost: Approximately $120

SL team from 2012

Malone Service Learning Team from 2012

Details: Learn from and work with our urban neighbors in Canton through Lighthouse Ministries . The Lighthouse is an urban youth outreach organization that offers programming to support the at-risk youth living in it's Southeast Canton neighborhood.

Our time with the Lighthouse will be divided three ways:

  1. We will work with their after school program each day, at the elementary school, helping students with homework, playing with them in recreation, helping with art class, etc.
  2. We will spend a portion of each day learning about poverty and the forces/decisions that seem to perpetuate poverty here in the U.S.
  3. We will work at the Lighthouse and other similar agencies and/or with local homeowners helping with small work projects that need taken care of. This trip will stretch and challenge us in many ways and give us a new understanding of the city we live in.

 This trip qualifies for the community service component for the course SWK 211: Community Based Cross Cultural Experience.
