Habitat for Humanity Spring Break Trip: El Salvador
The mission of the Alternative Break Program with Habitat for Humanity is to provide Babson students with opportunities to engage in intensive service experiences with communities in need during campus breaks, and through reflective activities, promote civic engagement, leadership development, and appreciation of diversity. The program challenges students to participate in an extended and intensive service experience during the college's winter, spring and summer breaks. These experiential learning opportunities help students develop a sense of personal identity and community, as well as an understanding of important societal issues, while helping other who are in need of assistance. Each trip provides the opportunity to meet new people, visit new places, and learn new skills. Alternative Break can be a very rewarding, and sometimes, life changing experience.
Since 2007, every spring and summer Babson faculty, staff, and students participate in Habitat for Humanity International trips to El Salvador. Babson volunteers have built homes in the cities of Santa Ana, San Salvador, and La Paz. Most recently Babson has started an entrepreneurship program in a small village in Ahuachapan, where volunteers teach entrepreneurial leadership skills. Both programs are week long immersion trips where volunteers will learn about the community and culture and participate in building homes and teaching entrepreneurship.
