Students in Fresno State’s Alternative Spring Break program will engage in community service projects from April 13 to April 18. The 24 students will partner with Wesley United Methodist Church, Boys and Girls Club and Upper Merced River Watershed Council.

The students are expected to develop their leadership and communication skills, enhance their personal and professional development and network with other students and community benefit organizations. Split into two teams, the first 14 students will work with Wesley United Methodist Church and the Boys and Girls Club on a four-day Science Technology Engineering Art and Math (STEAM) camp. The second team, made up of nine students, will work with the Upper Merced River Watershed Council on a trail restoration project.

The program is sponsored by Associated Students Incorporated, Friends for Civic Engagement and the Jan and Bud Richter Center for Community Engagement and Service-Learning.
