Ah, spring break. The sun, the swimming, the partying…
Or, if you were one of 102 Fordham students, you spent this year’s spring break being “men and women for others.”
This year, Global Outreach, Fordham’s immersion and service program, sent 102 students and 11 chaperones to ten projects around the world.
The trips, which are geared toward learning about social, economic, political and environmental injustice issues while living a lifestyle that fosters communal and spiritual growth, were to Guatemala (two teams), Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, San Diego, Detroit, New Orleans, the Adirondack Mountainss, and Waynesburg, PA.
Ryan Creamer, a senior at Fordham College Rose Hill who worked on the GO Detroit, summed up the spirit of the week thusly:
“I applied to participate in Global Outreach because I wanted to expand my understanding of the world.”
We asked members of this year’s GO team’s to share a few shots of their trips.
