Service Break Trips with OSLE

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.

Join us as we travel to Houston, Texas to assist in hurricane recovery with Break A Difference, an organization coordinating service trips for students to volunteer and to build a "life of service". Hurricane Harvey brought with it 40+ inches of rain and 100 mph winds that caused catastrophic flooding, and property damage. With assistance from Break A Difference volunteers and local partners, we can make an impact restoring homes and community centers as Houston rebuilds.
