Domestic Outreach Trips

Each year, Campus Ministries’ Center for Service and Social Justice runs a number of service trips over Intersession and spring break. Domestic Outreach Trips in 2019 include trips to Homeboy Industries, the St. Bernard Project, White Violet Center for EcoJustice and many more!

Students at Homeboy Industries (pictured left) will “serve at-risk youth and adults with the largest and most comprehensive gang intervention and rehabilitation program in the country.”

Students at the St. Bernard Project will “repair and rebuild homes.”

Students at White Violet Center for EcoJustice will “Engage in hands-on and educational experiences that focus on environmental justice and sustainability.”

These are just a few of the locations that University of Scranton students will be visiting this year.

Grace Dickson ’20 is facilitating the group on this year’s Domestic Outreach trip to White Violet Center for EcoJustice in Indiana.

“Domestic Outreach Trips are an amazing opportunity for students,” Dickson said.  “It gives students the chance to travel in the best way possible: learning about seeing new locations for what they really are, not just the tourist stops.  These trips allow students to gain new perspectives of our country by serving those who are marginalized in various types of service.”
