Alternative Weekend Break- St. Louis Poverty & Homelessness

Alternative Weekend Breaks give you an opportunity to immerse yourself in service for a weekend and learn about a social issue facing Missouri’s communities. During this experience, we will travel as a group to Saint Louis MO, get to know our team, do service on Saturday and Sunday morning, and reflect on the work we are doing and impact we are having on our state. For our Sunday service project, we will be partnering with volunteers from Ameren, which will give you the opportunity to network with employers as you work towards a common goal.
