Collins Living Learning Center | Spring Break for Kids
L100 | 23157 | Monte Simonton
Meets March 2, 9, and 23 and includes a spring break field experience
working with children at the RISE. Mon-Fri 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Learn about the resourcefulness and resilience of children dealing with the
trauma of domestic violence while providing them with a fun-filled Spring
Break here in Bloomington. In this Alternative Spring Break course, partner
with The Rise, a transitional housing shelter for women and children who
have been victims of domestic violence, to meet a true community need.
These children might have a week's vacation from school, but few parents can
take this much time off of work to spend with their children. You can help
provide opportunities for the children of The Rise, such as hiking at
McCormick's Creek State Park, visiting local museums, swimming at the Y,
and much more. Students needing housing during Spring Break can make
arrangements through RPS for the week. More specific information on this will
be available early in the spring semester by contacting Yara Cluver at
