Day Trippers

 Day Trippers Program:

Mission: To explore outside counties and communities relatively close to Corvallis in order to learn, understand and develop relationships for the purpose of community engagement.

  • Intermediary duration trip between one-time/on-going/alternative spring break 
  • Two main ideas; (1) to engage students in service work outside of familiar communities and counties, (2) to engage students in service work for an extended period of time for a day.  
  • Students, faculty and volunteers alike are able to experience meaningful service work outside of Corvallis. 
  • Unfamiliarity with new locations and communties requires trust among participants. 
  • Longer duration (approx. 5 – 8hours) allows for more impact to volunteers in the way of reflection and educational sessions that are informative to volunteers.  
  • CCE wishes to make new community partnerships outside of Corvallis and Albany.
