" At the heart of it all, my work is driven by my belief that God created the world and people to be good stewards of it. For me, that means living in a sustainable manner and encouraging others to do the same, so that we can show love and act equitably towards our neighbors now and in the future. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Alternatives on Alternatives
As part of the Executive Board for Alternative Service Breaks (ASB), the goal is to provide students with service outlets, education surrounding volunteerism, and community. Typically, they send out service trips over school breaks, but this year will take on a different form as they plan 'trips' virtually. They are creating alternative ways to bring people together for others in this time of separation! The team hope to educate and empower over 100 Georgia Tech students to volunteer virtually or in their individual communities. The program will connect students to volunteering opportunities and allow them to meet in small pods to discuss their service and deeper issues surrounding sustainability, community engagement, racial inequality, and more.
