Set spring break plans now: CCEL offering service trips to New Orleans, Nicaragua

The Center for Civic Engagement and Learning (CCEL) will offer service trips to New Orleans and Nicaragua during spring break.

The New Orleans trip involves volunteering at a variety of nonprofit organizations, including some that work with people affected by Hurricane Katrina. The cost of the trip is approximately $450.

The Nicaragua trip involves volunteering on both construction and youth-based projects in a rural Nicaraguan community. The cost of that trip is $1,550 (including international airfare).
