LARAMIE, Wyo. - University of Wyoming students have the chance to help improve lives and communities during their winter and spring breaks.
UW's alternative breaks program provides an opportunity for students to work on community-based service projects, both nationally and internationally. Students spend their winter or spring break addressing a variety of issues ranging from homelessness and social issues to environmental preservation.
The winter program is in Jamaica Dec. 12-21. Students will assist in the construction of a school, build a food center and help tutor and mentor school children in a rural Jamaican community.
Scholarships based on merit and financial need are available to participating students.
