Twelve Middlebury students will be traveling to San Francisco, CA 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.
Through working with a diverse collection of community partners, such as Garden for the Environment and Urban Sprouts, students will engage in hands-on service-learning projects focused around urban farming in the Bay Area. Participants will also interact with the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS) to connect the agricultural skills they learn with broader ideas about environmental policy and sustainable resource accessibility.
