Twelve Middlebury students will be traveling to San Jose, Puerto Rico 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.
This trip will partner with Iniciativa Comunitaria to receive training on gender and health issues in Puerto Rico. We will offer logistical and educational support to their programs that protect women in situations of sexual risk, drug abuse, and social vulnerability.
