What are Immersion Service Trips

Take your service on the road! UNCW students travel with members of the professional staff to increase their reach to positively impact a regional, national, and global community. Immerse yourself in the community; the culture, the people, and the issues they face everyday. Learn and grow together as you volunteer your time over a UNCW break.

2020 Spring Break Service Trips 

Wilmington Service Trip

"Experience Wilmington"

Wilmington, North Carolina
March 8th-14th

*Cost: $150 (Covers transportation, lodging, and food)

Like other service break trips, for Wilmington our focus is the service working with Habitat for Humanity and The Good Shepherd Center and the long recovery after Hurricane Florence, but we also have several activities planned that will highlight what makes Wilmington special. We all live in Wilmington, but it doesn’t mean we have “experienced Wilmington”: 

Mark things off your Wilmington bucket list:

  • Boat tours on the Cape Fear River 
  • Exploring downtown  
  • Sunsets on the beach  
  • Picnics at Carolina Beach State Park 
  • Fort Fisher
We want to help our community by not only assisting with the hurricane recovery but also by doing our part to support local restaurants and businesses. We will be staying at a local Airbnb at Kure Beach and traveling together throughout the trip like you would if we traveled to another city, but in our own backyard. We will have the same trip experience and we don’t even have to travel outside the city we love. 

 Spring Break 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta, Georgia

March 7th-13th

*Cost: $150 (Covers transportation, lodging, and food)*

Join us as we serve at Solomon's Temple in Atlanta, Georgia, specifically through a non-profit called Restoration ATL. The Temple is an emergency and transitional facility for women and children in homelessness in hopes to guide the families to independence. Activities for the week will include preparing meals, dining with residents, and after-school programming with the children.
