Office of Student Leadership and Engagement

Atlanta Service Trip 2016

Community Service Trips

Our office offers alternative break trips to students who are interested in participating in community service trips. UNCW students travel with members of the professional staff to areas of need for a week, increasing their reach to positively impact a regional, national, and global community. In the past, our student groups have worked with women's and children's homes, shelters, and rebuilding projects.

In Spring 2014, our student group had a life changing experience while working with The City of Refuge in Atlanta, Georgia. This has inspired our office to continue organizing break trips where UNCW students can work with City of Refuge, to be with and serve the women and children in the shelter.

City of Refuge is a place "Where Good Works" to effect positive, lasting, meaningful, tangible, transformational change in the lives it touches- whoever they may be and from wherever they may come, rich or poor. Learn more about City of Refuge.

We visited Atlanta in Spring 2016...

Eleven UNCW students with Assistant Director, Erin Williamson, traveled to City of Refuge in Atlanta, GA for Spring Break. The City of Refuge is a non-profit organization dedicated to community development efforts that lead to the stability and sustainability of the local community. We spent afternoons and evenings participating in activities at the shelter, including the after-school care program for children, arts and crafts, karaoke, and meals. We also explored Atlanta, visiting the Museum of Human and Civil Rights, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, and Sweet Auburn Market.
