The Elizabethtown College Center for Civic and Community Engagement organizes several service trips during the academic year, as well as over breaks.
Project Homeless Connect Fall 2016
Do you have a willingness to engage with the undeserved? Participate by helping with Project Homeless Connect in Harrisburg. Volunteers will be paired with a person from the community that is homeless or at risk, and will help them as they walk around the building and experience different resources and services. Training is provided and required prior to the event. Lunch and a T-shirt will also be provided. Sign up in Nicarry 237 or 238 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Spend the weekend living in a shelter, using public transportation, and helping with special service projects within the shelter.
