The purpose of the service immersion trips is to provide Babson students with opportunities to engage in intensive service experiences with communities in need during campus breaks, and through reflective activities, promote civic engagement, leadership development, and appreciation of diversity. The program challenges students to participate in an extended and intensive service experience during the College’s winter and spring breaks. These experiential learning opportunities help students develop a sense of personal identity and community, as well as an understanding of important societal issues, while helping others who are in need of assistance. Each trip provides the opportunity to meet new people, visit new places, and learn new skills. Service Immersion can be a very rewarding, and sometimes, life-changing experience.
