Details
The purpose of the trip and the reimbursement of funds of up to $500 per student would be to immerse students in the culture of the south and also to immerse students in a area of the country that needs volunteer and service help year-round. The students would learn about a different culture, do valuable service work in a different part of the country, and learn to not take for granted many of the things that they have in their lives that others do not.

Fundraisers would be arranged throughout the year to offset the cost of transportation, lodging, and food so as to reimburse students as little as possible out of the SAF funds .
Itemized Request
The requested monies would go towards a reimbursement for students of no more than $500 each and up to 10 students for attending the Alternative Spring Break trip, potentially traveling to New Orleans, LA.

Open to all Campus?
All students are welcome to sign-up for this trip and will become open for student sign-ups once the Fall semester begins. Flyers will be created and placed across campus, an ad will be put into the Stall Seat Journal, part of the weekly email of campus updates, hand bills, through the trip fundraising events, and social media.
# of Students Benefit
Approximately 10 students in theory.
Enhance PSY
The entire purpose of this trip is for service learning...to show students another side of the way people live and to offer them just a small token of help in their time of need. The trip will also be potentially linked with other Penn State campuses which would only further drive Penn State's name and image in the community but in the community of a different part in the United States. Community Service is important for all students to experience and this trip is sort of the culminating service trip that Penn State York could offer to our students.
Desired Outcomes
As a result, students will be able to show an appreciation for what they have in their daily lives, the satisfaction of doing good, hard, volunteer work in the community, working together as one big Penn State group, and has the potential to grow to other smaller trips to local communities/bordering states if this program does serve to be successful.

Supporting the birthday of Ava is about showing her that her friends here at Penn State York care about her and are proud of everything she has been through in her fight against cancer. This is a great opportunity for students on campus to meet and incredible and inspirational little girl.

After this event we are hoping students who attend will have a connection with one of our THON families. Also, we hope that students will understand the importance and significance of what THON does and stands for.
