2016 Trip Locations

Solar Spring Break – Central Coast / San Luis Obispo, CA

We are partnering with Grid Alternatives to offer a Solar Spring Break opportunity in the San Luis Obispo, CA area, along the central coast of Califorina. Solar Spring Break enables participants to learn about solar energy programs and install solar panels for a local community. Furthermore, participants will meet with local organizations to learn about harnessing solar energy as a solution to our generation’s energy challenges. Downtime could include beach time or hiking in the central coast region.


Habitat for Humanity Build – Colorado

CMC will participate in the Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge this spring break in Colorado. Participants will work in partnership with the local community to further Habitat for Humanity’s mission of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. This trip will involve construction of new home, but you do not need construction experience to participate. The Habitat staff will provide training and on-site support for all participants.
Free time will include exploring the beautiful Colorado outdoors through hiking or excursions to nearby attractions.

Immigration & Refugee Studies – San Diego, CA

With a home base in San Diego, participants on this trip will focus on the highly trafficked international border and immigrant and refugee populations settled near this area. The program will include visiting immigrant-serving agencies in Tijuana, San Diego and El Cajon and learning about issues and challenges facing this area.
*NOTE* You must have a current and valid passport in order to participate on this trip, as you will be crossing the border into Mexico. International students will need to have a multi-entry visa as well. Contact Amy Bibbens if you have any questions about this requirement.
