Twelve Middlebury students will be traveling to Atlanta, GA over February break as part of a Middlebury Alternative Break (MAlt) trip.
MAlt is a student organization that provides student-designed and student-led service trips for Middlebury College students. MAlt offers opportunities for students to participate in strong direct service that seeks to address needs as determined by a local community partner. MAlt is committed to a needs-blind acceptance policy. As a result, we do extensive fundraising to ensure that participants’ financial needs can be met. We all work together to support one another, which is why this fundraiser is so critical to our efforts.
Participants will be immersed in the refugee resettlement process for newly-arrived residents through orientation programs at the International Rescue Committee and New American Pathways in Atlanta, Georgia. We will get the opportunity to work directly with this New American community through ESL classes, literacy programs, and youth programs as well as participate in behind the scene work to support our two community partners’ on-going efforts.
