Middlebury

A network of microphilanthropy that supports Middlebury students.

Twelve Middlebury students will be traveling to St. Louis, MO 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 volunteer with Kingdom House, a non-profit helping the economically disadvantaged achieve financial independence. Students will have an opportunity to engage in several holistic programs that promote empowerment and growth in individuals and families, including daycares, youth programs and health and wellness programs
