Spend Spring Break Making a Difference!!

L100: *** We still have 5 spots left.

Every year Middle Way House The Rise collaborates with a service learning course (CLLC-L100, 11084 Spring Break for Kids) to provide the children with a Spring Break Camp. The class is an alternative to spring break and meets March 3rd, March 10th, and March 24th from 6:00-8:30 p.m. and includes meeting the week of Spring Break from 8:30 a.m. -5 p.m. The first two classes the students will get a foundation on the effects of domestic violence on children. They will learn about Middle Way House and about what we will doing with the children over spring break. During spring break we will spend Mon-Fri 9-5 with between 45-60 children all from domestic violence, homeless, and poverty situtaions. We will go to the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis, the Exotic Feline Rescue Center,The Indianapolis Zoo, and Wonder Lab. We will go to a Chemistry Magic show, go swimming, and have live animals brought in by the Humane Society for some educational programs and two animal rescue programs. It is a really fun week that allows students to make a difference in a child’s life over Spring Break. **** We still need to raise another $1000 to do all of the weeks activities. If you or a student group would like to help raise it please contact Monte Simonton at msimonto@hotmail.com for more information or honrovol@indiana.edu
