Past Trips by the Hubbard Center in 2014
- Urban Promises, Camden, NJ. Are you interested in urban affairs, educational policy, or youth mentorship then this is the perfect trip for you. 93% of students who go through Urban Promises schools attend college in a city that has a devastating 50% dropout rate for high school youth. During this trip you will help with basic construction such as painting or cleaning along with working with their after-school programs.
- Mexico Solidarity Network, Chicago, IL. Come to Chicago and learn about immigration reform and the dynamics of working with immigrant communities through community organizing. You will learn about important emerging issues in their community and work alongside their populist educational programs such as youth art classes, English as a Second Language classes, and adult high school classes.
