New Trip Highlight: Exploring Privilege and Poverty in Washington, D.C.
In February 2016, a group of students will visit the US capital to explore economic equality and the themes of Middlebury's new Privilege and Poverty Program. Through pre-trip education and on-site volunteering, we will aim to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the causes and effects of poverty. Our volunteer work will seek to benefit impoverished members of societies by working for agencies that strengthen community development initiatives. Service-learning focuses will be on the educational, healthcare, legal, housing, psychological, social and economic needs of individuals and their communities. Our aim is to engage student participants in meaningful ways while also helping the community partner address the needs they’ve identified. The ultimate goal of this trip is to provide students with the adequate resources and experiences to be able to bring an important social issue they have learned about firsthand back to the campus community.
