Break Description

As active citizens participating in community service learning, we will focus on resettlement for previously incarcerated individuals by helping them transition back into society. Dismas House provides support for the residents to reach their goals through education, housing, counseling, and food resources. We will have the opportunity to work as a group renovating rooms, painting, landscaping, and assisting with meals for the residents. We will also work with the agency to make items for sale such as jewelry and different carpentry projects.

While in South Bend we will spend our free time exploring Notre Dame’s campus, enjoying the beautiful winter weather, and experiencing other local activities.
