Campus Ministry invites students to participate in an Alternative Spring Break experience March 15-19, 2021, offering the students an opportunity to look deeper at justice issues in the Twin Cities and surrounding area and engage in meaningful, relationship-centered volunteer work.
The justice issues will be examined through several experiences in the Twin Cities and reflection and sharing in order for participants to process their experience communally and individually. These experiences include:
Onsite work with Health Commons at Central Lutheran Church and in the Cedar Riverside clinic.
A presentation and activities by the University of MN Mapping Prejudice project, exploring housing inequity due to racial disparities.
A presentation and activities by the Lutheran Social Service of MN (LSS-MN) Advocacy team, providing practical and current information on ways to be advocates.
Activities are subject to change due to COVID-19 protocols.
For volunteer opportunities, students will partner with LSS-MN at Supported Living Homes (SLH), known as ‘group homes.’ SLH provides a family home setting to no more than 4 community members living with differing abilities.
Students will serve in small groups at several homes. Activities may include yard work, building maintenance, meal prep, and social activities alongside those who live in the home. Volunteer work will focus on the relational aspect of volunteering, rather than the actual jobs accomplished. Volunteer activities are designed to help volunteers and residents see one another as individuals rather than ‘other.’
This ASB has been approved to count as an Augsburg Experience. Please indicate on the registration form if you would like that option.
Cost: $25, including the required book & lunch each of the 5 days. Please fill out the registration form & turn in your fee to Janice Dames in the Campus Ministry office.

The Kente Summit is for undergraduate Black men who attend Colleges and Universities in Minnesota. Staff and Faculty are encouraged to attend with their students. All who attend – students, staff, and faculty – are asked to register.
Registration closes on Thursday, March 4.
Please share this information with others who may be interested.
The Kente Summit is an outstanding opportunity for collegiate Black men. The objective is to assemble male undergraduate students of African descent in order to build community across campuses, identities, experiences, and commonly faced issues while honoring identity, intersectionality, inclusion, and intentionality – the four cornerstones of the Kente Summit.
Our hope is that this event will provide a supportive space for participants to build community and strategies for success together.
