Service Trip Design and Leadership: Alternative Break

Students in this course actively engage in the concepts, issues, and tasks integral to effective leadership for COR215 Alternative Break service-learning course/trips. Through weekly classes and participation in an intensive weekend service-learning trip during the semester, students build skills in reflection, fund-raising, sponsorship, budgeting, group dynamics, experiential learning, and education. Course activities deepen students' understanding of the key components of an Alternative Break, preparing them to design an Alternative Break proposal and act as leaders for the program. Final proposals serve as the culminating project of this course and are submitted for review by the Alternative Break Committee. Students will have the opportunity to lead their trips at Naropa if selected. Course fee.
