Extreme Makeover: UTSA Edition

Come to our VOICES general meeting or come by the VOICES office to sign up and get more information!!
The Hunger Banquet is an experiential dinner, where participants eat a meal based on the class/status that they draw on their way in the door. Participants have the opportunity to learn about global hunger issues, and participate in group discussion about the causes and realities of hunger. Email email@example.com for more information! The banquet will be November 19, 2014.
An alternative break program places teams of college students in communities to engage in community service and experiential learning during their spring breaks. UTSA VOICES has sponsored Alternative Spring Break trips since 2004. Alternative Breaks empowers and challenges students to understand their relationship within the global community through education, reflection, and direct service while on weeklong service trips over a break. Past Spring Break trips included Atlanta, Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Big Bend, and Piedras Negras, Mexico. As of 2014 we are now offering Alternative Winter Break trips to take place in January.
Where will we go next?
