Alternative Breaks

THE ESSENTIAL ISSUE: WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

Our hope above all else is to help students gain clarity in how they can leverage their passions and skill sets to serve others, predominately through future vocations they are pursuing. Being exposed and understanding how they can make a strategic impact in their own communities is vital to influencing culture for the common good.

HOW MEDICI PROJECT ALTERNATIVE BREAKS ARE FORMED

3 Dimensional Experience

Fun

We want to create raving fans. We also want your students going back to your campus talking about how awesome your department, program, club, or group is! Having fun creates memorable experiences. Your students will enjoy time in the city, with all kinds of stuff to do!

Logistically Clear & Simple

Details offer freedom. Freedom from fear. Freedom of safety. Freedom for fun. Our trips  offer this type of freedom because we love logistics. Our passion for clear and simple logistics kills anxiety, and leave room for questions that matter most to you and your students.

Dignifying

Our service projects are about recognizing dignity of the individuals we are serving. These trips are not about giving to someone, but giving with. There is much to learn from those that we serve. People matter, and we serve like they matter.

Strategic

What are you wanting your students to walk away with? This is the question we build your entire week around. We strive to be strategic with the educational aspects, challenging aspects, and long term goals of helping students gain clarity on how service can be a formative driving force for future vocations.

Proven

The proof is in the pudding. We’ve been doing this a while, and we love it! Check out some of the testimonials below to see what other students have experienced with us in the past.

Testimonials

Courtney Bending“Spending my Spring Break 2k15 in Georgia with the Medici Project staff and Atlanta community has been such a humbling experience.  I expected to leave GA with some sense of accomplishment and a smile on my face, but what I left with was much more.  After a week with the Medici Project, I left with knowledge of various concerns within the U.S. such as human trafficking; I left with the mantra, “Do Something,” replaying on a loop, because it in all truth doing nothing gets you nowhere; and of course, I left with that smile – because in the process of helping the Atlanta, GA community, I also rediscovered my passion for helping people.” – Courtney Bendig (University of Delaware)
