Sarah Lawrence students resurrect alternative spring break by serving in NY
BRONXVILLE, N.Y. — Because of the Covid-19 outbreak, students from Sarah Lawrence College had not been able to go on alternative spring break service trips since 2019. That changed this year, and 11 students chose to work on a unique project with The Fuller Center for Housing of Greater New York City.
Blending the two main things The Fuller Center is all about — housing and faith — the students helped with the renovation of a 200-year-old former Quaker meeting house into what will become apartments for two families.
“Getting the opportunity to be part of an Alternative Spring Break was immensely gratifying,” said junior Alejandra Pasquel for the school’s new report on the trip. “Working alongside peers and encouraging mentors made the experience not only fun but educational.”
