Applications are now open for Spring Break New Haven! This week-long immersion program provides a broad introduction to New Haven and its many treasures and challenges through service and conversation with various neighbors, non-profit organizations, and religious communities, plus exposure to restaurants, public parks, the local art scene, and more. Each day we’ll visit a different neighborhood and spend some time getting to know the area and then gather back at the Chaplain’s Office in the evenings for dinner, discussion and reflection on the intersections between our own lives and those of our neighbors. We ask you to commit for the full week. Come explore the city you live in and consider what it means to call this place home.
Who: Open to all Yale undergrad, grad, and professional students. Students of any or no religious tradition are welcome to participate.
When: Sunday, March 8th at 6pm – Friday, March 13th at 1pm
Where: Here in New Haven! You will sleep in your regular on-campus or off-campus housing; no special housing accommodations are part of this program.
Cost: $50, scholarships available. Meals and transportation provided.
