Want to lead a summer Reach Out trip?

January 15, 2010

Interested in applying to be a Summer Reach Out Trip Leader?  We will be holding a Trip Leader Info Session on January 19th at 8PM in either the Davenport Common Room or the Saybrook Atheneum Room (exact location TBA)!

As you begin to plan your summers, we at Reach Out urge you to consider leading a summer Reach Out trip.  Leading a Reach Out trip is an incredible opportunity for Yale students to shape a life-changing experience for themselves, their trip participants, and hopefully the people they interact with. Past projects have included setting up a computer lab in a rural village in Ghana, working with Iraqi refugees in Jordan, and construction in Belize.

From picking the service project, to planning the traveling portion, dealing with logistical matters, and selecting trip participants, all trips are fully organized by Yale students.  Leading a trip can be a big commitment, but it is also an extraordinarily fulfilling one.

And why summer? Because of our lengthy summer breaks, summer is a fantastic time to lead a Reach Out trip.  Summer Reach Out trips are able to last longer than our Spring Break trips.  Dates are totally flexible which means that whether you plan to be working, interning or studying this summer – you can plan your trip so it that caters to your schedule.

In order to get ideas for your trip, check out past trip itineraries on our website and get in contact with past trip leaders. Start thinking about who you would want to lead with, where you might want to go, and what you might want to do before the info session.  Applications to become a Summer Trip Leader will be due tentatively on February 2nd (only 2 weeks after the info session). Let us know if we can assist you or answer any questions.

We hope you’ve been having great breaks and that you’ll consider leading summer Reach Out trips.
