Ohio Wesleyan Students Serve Others during Spring Break
2018 Apr 3
Nearly 40 Ohio Wesleyan University students traveled to five sites in the United States and Mexico as part of OWU's 2018 spring break Interfaith Service week.
During their trips, the teams were guided by the program's "essential pillars" of restorative justice, transformative reflection, substantive community, and conscientious leadership.
The students and their faculty-staff advisers traveled to Houston and New Orleans to repair hurricane-damaged homes; to the Lakota Nation in South Dakota to help rebuild Lakota-Anglo relationships and support Native American youth; to Philadelphia to explore multiple faith traditions; and to Mexico to examine the economics of social responsibility and sustainable practices.
Congratulations to all involved for a successful week of life-changing learning and service!
