Nearly 60 Widener University students took part in the national Alternative Spring Break program this semester on university-sponsored service trips to five locations around the United States. Though their destinations varied, the students were all driven to help others and expand their worldviews.
Graham Skywark of Blauvelt was among those to take part in the program, traveling to Richmond, Kentucky for his spring break experience. Widener has been participating in the national Alternative Spring Break program for nearly two decades, partnering with Habitat for Humanity to serve underdeveloped or low-income areas, or places affected by natural disaster.
In addition to the national program, Widener also facilitated travel for students who visited Costa Rica, Honduras, and Trinidad and Tobago for service-oriented experiences during spring break.
