Honors Alternative Spring Break - Denver, CO
Ten Honors students will make the week-long trip from Tucson to Denver, Colorado over their alternative spring break. Just the journey itself is an experience, so we will be making the most of it by looping through all the Four Corners' States on our way there and back, as well as visiting two national parks. Once we're in Denver, we will be volunteering with several local organizations in the field of public health. Such activities will include packaging medicine and food parcels for low-income and homeless communities, as well as constructing safe housing and listening to professional opinions from college professors and city officials involved with Public Health.
This will be a new trip for HASB, so we are excited to develop it from the ground up and make it our own!
Honors Alternative Spring Break (HASB) gives students the opportunity to travel during their UA spring break to a new community, where they work with a partner organization to accomplish specific goals and improve the local communities. This experience teaches students what it means to be an engaged and responsible citizen, which they find to be rewarding, eye-opening, and life-altering.
