Effective education provides facts and opinions from all perspectives on the issue, including ways that participants’ personal life choices are connected to the social issue.
Programs provide an opportunity for participants to engage in direct or “hands on” projects and activities that address unmet social needs, as determined by the community. Community interaction during service projects and throughout the week is highly encouraged.
During the trip, participants are encouraged to reflect upon the experience they are having, synthesizing the direct service, education, and community interaction. Time is set aside for this to take place both individually and as a group.
