KGNU Interview: Naropa’s Alternative Break Program

Naropa alternative spring break

For the past several years, Naropa professor Deborah Young has organized journeys to the US/Mexico border through Naropa’s Alternative Break Program, providing students the opportunity to learn first-hand about issues surrounding immigration.

This year’s trip traveled to Tucson, Arizona and worked in the Tohono O’odham community. Several students who attended, Maycee Carroll, Charla Harvey, and Stephanie Zuniga, recently sat down with KGNU to discuss their experience. You can listen to the full interview here:

 

More on Naropa’s Alternative Breaks:

The mission of Naropa’s Alternative Breaks is to cultivate contemplative activists through experiential learning. Alternative break trips integrate education, direct service, and reflection while immersing students in real-world, social justice issues that aim to create lasting change for the community and transform our students into engaged global citizens. As of the 2014-2015 academic year, Naropa now offers the opportunity to blend trips with academic credit through the COR undergraduate curriculum.
