Alternative Spring Break


Village Earth and Colorado State University’s office for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement organize an “Alternative Spring Break” program on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Through this newly created program 10 CSU students spent their week long spring break helping families across the reservation on various projects including getting bikes donated for youth, delivering firewood, installing fencing, and delivering food and other needed items to elders.
