Collins Living Learning Center | Spring Break for Kids
L100 | 11614 | Monte Simonton

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.  For more information
