(Jan. 19, 2010)--The UTSA student organization VOICES (Volunteer Organization Involving Community Education and Service) and the UTSA Inclusion and Community Engagement Center will host three service trips for students during spring break. The volunteer work often is called "Alternative Spring Break."
Habitat for Humanity Amarillo (March 14-19): The trip is part of the Habitat for Humanity Collegiate Challenge, a program that brings college students to sites all over the country to help build houses for people in need. The group will spend four and a half days onsite building and will explore the Texas Panhandle each evening.
HandsOn New Orleans (March 14-19): The New Orleans trip will include different projects each day. HandsOn came to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and continues to help with recovery from the storm while tackling other social issues in the New Orleans area. During free time, the group will have time to enjoy the food and culture of the city.
Project San Antonio (March 15-19, daytime only): Each day, volunteers will serve a different community agency in San Antonio. On Friday, the group will celebrate their service with a social outing. Confirmed projects include San Antonio Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity San Antonio.
