Event Time and Date

Friday, March 31 2017, 5:00 PM to Sunday, April 2 2017, 5:00 PM
8 Days until this Event

On a weekend service immersion trip with VT Engage, you’ll serve a cause that matters to you, dive more deeply into social justice issues through reflection, and meet other students passionate about questioning and serving.

 Join us as we travel to Asheville, North Carolina to serve with Greenworks in support of their mission to equip and mobilize individuals and communities to take action to care for our environment. In previous semesters, volunteers have participated in roadside cleanups, creek cleanups, and community orchard maintenance.

This trip is capped at 12 participants. Register today! We will depart campus after classes on Friday, usually around 5 p.m., and return early Sunday evening, usually around 5 p.m.

The cost of each trip is $30, which covers transportation, food, and housing. Need-based scholarships are available for these trips. All applicants will be considered. Contact us at engage@vt.edu for more information.
