For five consecutive years, Perspectives Leadership Academy (PLA) scholars are working with college students from Howard University during the week of March 16th. “Each year, Howard students visit during their spring break and work with a select group of students,” said Antoinette Self, program manager at PLA.
Hundreds of Howard University students who skipped the beaches, parties, vacations and even trips home for spring break are embarking to seven U.S. cities and Haiti, where they will spend the week serving others. This year during the Alternative Spring Break (ASB) week of March 16, more than 400 students will be working in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, Memphis, New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and the communities of Croix des Bouquets and Petion-Ville in Haiti.
Lunionsuite's support & Howard University grad student @Mcthewriter in Haiti for Spring break: @mcthewriter : So today we are working at Ecole Shalom in in Coix-des-Bouquets… These kids showed up to my session and happened to have the same last name as me, Charélus. Knowing how small my family is- I just know they are somehow related to me. #HUASB #HowardUniversity #HowardUniversityASB #HaitiCherie #Lunionsuite #Springbreak #Haitianamerican 🎓❤️💙🌺
Another shot of Howard university student @mcthewriter and her classmates in Haiti for Spring Break. @mcthewriter : We are here at Foyer d'Amour d'Haiti. Working with the special needs today. These kids are as talented as others- only if people give them as much attention. #HowardUniversityASB #HowardUniversity #ABS2015 #HUASB #HUASB2015 #Haitianamerican #Springbreak #Haiti #CollegeStudents #Lunionsuite 🎓❤️💙🌺
