For over 30 years, Marquette University students have enjoyed choosing service trips during Marquette's Spring Break. To spend time living in community, reflecting upon issues of social justice, and making a difference in a community in need, is a memory not to be missed.
Our sites are organized within the themes of urban poverty, rural poverty, education, diversity and justice within the indigenous population and immigrants, disaster rebuilding, and much more. Each site offers our students the chance to live simply and work hand and hand with the community for one week.
M.A.P. trips are worthwhile for many reasons: you contribute to the community in which you work, are exposed to different social, cultural and economic situations in our society, grow in awareness of justice issues, learn how service organizations work to make a difference, meet and interact with new people, and have time to reflect upon how the experience relates to you personally and your faith.
