OVERVIEW

  • Typically cities are places that we go for sports events, shopping, or to work. However, there is another side to American cities rampant with problems from crime to lack of education. Urban poverty leaves parents unemployed, families homeless, and children hungry. Now is your chance to learn about poverty in your hometown.
  • The Urban Plunge is a one-credit winter break seminar through the Center for Social Concerns. For two to three days students explore the other side of cities. During this time you will do direct service, discuss issues with local service agencies, and speak with those afflicted by urban poverty. It is a great way to start involvement at the Center for Social Concerns or continue your exploration of social justice issues.
