Spring Break Outreach (SBO) is a week-long service immersion program that takes place in eight different sites throughout the eastern United States. Approximately 100 students, faculty, and staff participate in SBO. By meeting together in small groups during the months prior to the trip participants are able to learn about the host community, discuss service and social justice issues and grow as a team. Then, during spring break participants servicing in their host community, will learn about the history and culture of the region. All participants make a commitment to live simply during their week of service; this often means staying in sleeping bags in community centers and churches and preparing and eating economical meals. During and following the experience, participants are involved in formal reflection on their service and critical analysis of the social justice issues they encounter.
