Cornell Alternative Spring Break Program

Each spring break, a few dedicated Cornell students spend spring break working with kids in the Tangelo Park and Parramore communities. Student volunteers work with several groups of children on a variety of projects and mentorship programs . Volunteer work done with two-, three-, and four-year-old children include art projects, while time with fifth- and sixth-graders and high schoolers is spent tackling academic projects . At the end of the program, the Cornell students evaluate and discuss with community leaders the impact of philanthropic endeavors and public service on children and the local community.

The Cornell Alternative Spring Break program started in March 2008 and has enriched the lives of many students, children, and the Tangelo Park community. This program gives a voice to at-risk families, which helps others who are trying to make a positive impact on the community and improve existing social issues.
