Course Description

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 contact Lindsay Brown at

Special schedule: Feb 19, 26; March 4, 11, and 25; April 1 and during spring break working with children at the RISE, Mon-Fri 9:00 am to 6:00 p.m.

Instructor: Monte Simonton
