Each year MCC offers Alternative Break Trips which engage students in service to make a real difference in people’s lives all around the globe. Recent service has included projects for an Indian Reservation in South Dakota, staffing medical clinics and health education facilities in Ecuador and supporting children with life-threatening illnesses and their families in Florida. For more information on a specific trip, contact the advisor(s) listed below the description.
GIVE KIDS THE WORLD - FLORIDA
When: During Spring Break in March
Give Kids The World is a non-profit organization that exists only to fulfill the wishes of all children with life-threatening illnesses from around the world. Our goal is for these kids and their families to experience a memorable, joyful, and cost-free visit to the Central Florida attractions, as well as enjoy the magic of Give Kids The World Village. As a volunteer, you will help support children and their families by participating in themed activities and events, scooping ice cream, driving the train, participating in the life-size Candy Land game and much more!
MEDICAL MISSION - ECUADOR
This trip is ON HOLD at this time. We look forward to resuming our Medical Mission service trip in the future.
When: During Winter Break in January
Our Medical Mission team travels to help others, learn culture, and serve with a team of MCC students, faculty and local medical professionals. Training is included, all majors are welcome. Our team will participate in setting up medical clinics in rural communities through Timmy Global Health. Students who speak Spanish are encouraged to come as translators.
PINE RIDGE INDIAN RESERVATION - SOUTH DAKOTA
When: After Spring semester ends in May
Our team volunteers with Re-Member, a service organization on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. It is an emotional and life-changing week where you will witness the extreme poverty afflicting the Lakota people of Pine Ridge, build relationships with the Lakota People and learn of their rich culture. Our team will take on service projects such as building bunk beds, repairing leaking roofs, or skirting trailers. This trip is a balance of serving and cultural experiences.
