Middlebury

A network of microphilanthropy that supports Middlebury students.

Twelve Middlebury students will be traveling to Puerto Rico over February break as part of a Middlebury Alternative Break (MAlt) trip. We will be connecting with one another and the land in Puerto Rico by engaging in projects centered around environmentally sound practices for a healthy and viable future. We will be working with Plenitud, an eco-education non-profit organization committed to using permaculture practices to teach sustainable living skills. Participants will engage with community members through hands-on service activities and will be using the local knowledge to explore renewable practices and ecological food systems.

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.
