AIC Alternative Spring Break is an opportunity for our students to donate their vacation time to helping others.
Next week, 6 AIC students will dedicate their Spring Break to helping Habitat for Humanity build two different homes. We hope to raise $6,000 to them defray the cost including airfare, transportation, food, and housing. Please donate today. Learn about our amazing students:
I am a junior majoring in Physical Therapy. I am a member of the Outdoor Club, Lions Club, Model Congress, Garret Players, and a drummer in the Pep Band. I am also the Executive Treasurer of the Student Government Association. I wanted to be part of the Alternative Spring Break program because I have always enjoyed helping others that are less fortunate and giving back to communities in need.
I am a junior here at American International College working toward my Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy. I am a member of the Model Congress program, Dance Marathon, Lions Club, the Peer Mentor program, and a Student Ambassador. I decided to get involved with Alternative Spring Break because I felt it would be a great opportunity to help people, to learn many different skills, and to help build character.
I am a junior double majoring in Psychology and History. I am the founder of AIC’s Dance Marathon; a Tour Guide and Student Ambassador Leader for AIC Admissions, an assistant editor for the Taper Yearbook, a Representative at Large for Student Government Association, and a Peer mentor. Recently, I became a Disney College Program Alumni in which I worked as a Safari Guide in Animal Kingdom. I’m doing Alternative Spring Break because I love helping people and I believe this experience will benefit me as well as the greater community.
I am a junior at AIC and am working on my Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies. I would eventually like to earn my Masters degree in Higher Education Administration. Traveling has always been a dream of mine and when I heard about Alternative Spring Break I felt as if my dream was becoming a reality. I have applied for other volunteer programs but have not yet found the time or money to be able to truly go away and enjoy it. This program is very appealing to me since we are fundraising to help offset our costs and also that the program is through AIC. An experience like Alternative Spring Break will be much more meaningful than going away for spring break with my friends. I have always enjoyed helping people and I feel that this trip will be tremendously rewarding and mind-altering.
I am a senior at AIC majoring in Business. I have been very involved on campus including my position as a Resident Assistant, an Orientation Leader, a Peer Mentor, and a member of SIFE. I decided to take part in Alternative Spring Break simply because of my desire to aid those less fortunate than myself. I believe that all human beings have a moral duty to help others in any way, shape, or form; and I would like to exercise this belief. I have experience with serving my community, and the happiness associated with my actions makes the time spent and the sweat lost all worthwhile.
I am a junior from Granville, MA, majoring in Physical Therapy and minoring in Psychology. I am working towards my doctorate in Physical Therapy. I am a member of the Women’s Rugby team, President of the AIC Lions Club, an Orientation Leader and a Peer Mentor. Also, I was appointed General Chairperson to the 73rd Model Congress which took place this January. I serve as the Student Representative for the Trustees’ Committee for Enrollment and Marketing, as well as the Committee for Education Assessment. I also work as a Tour Guide and Student Ambassador for AIC Admissions. I have always been involved in Community Service and have been looking for another opportunity to help others outside of my community. I am looking forward to meeting others and bringing back community involvement ideas to expand the opportunities at American International College.
We are excited to help on two Habitat for Humanity projects! Cynthia Stevens has been in the program since 2010. Her home was started in January and will be about midway through when we arrive. Selena Lewis has been with the program since May 2012 and has been working very hard on her Sweat Equity and class requirements. We certainly can't wait to help create homes for these well deserving people. Visit http://www.hattiesburghabitat.org/?page_id=299 to learn more about Cynthia and Selena.
