This program, targeted towards first-year students, introduced students to service-learning and to this topic; students spent 4 days downtown working with the Mustard Seed shelter. In addition to volunteer projects, participants heard from guest speakers and learned about poverty and homelessness from members of our community and various experiential learning activities.
