Alternative Winter 2010 - St. Louis, MO
The 2010 AWB group traveled to St. Louis, Missouri. Trip Leader Stephen Thiel, who also served as the Student Director for the Alternative Break Program during the 2010-2011 academic year, was very creative in designing a very eclectic service trip. The theme was "A Tribute to Service" and was selected to represent the willingness of the group to serve anywhere and anyone. Children and homelessness were major emphasis but the group spent a great deal of time discussing larger and broader social justice issues. The group served at a variety of sites including Covenant House, Youth in Need Early Head Start Center, Food Outreach, Haven of Grace and Cornerstone Center of Early Learning.
