ABOUT THE PROJECT:
We are partnering with InterVarsity, a Christian fellowship at the University of Virginia, to provide an “alternative spring break” trip for students who would like to learn more about Charlottesville, urban ministry, and racial reconciliation. This project takes students less than two miles from campus to learn from residents and local ministries about the experience of people on the margins around them. As they listen and serve, students are invited to see God at work, spreading his kingdom in the city and in their own hearts and minds. They have the opportunity to commit to continue to engage locally throughout the school year or in the places they move after graduation. The project also provides a space for students from diverse backgrounds to build deeper relationships as they work together.
STUDENTS FROM OUTSIDE OF INTERVARSITY ARE ALSO INVITED TO ATTEND!
