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.

Testimonials

Courtney Bendig (University of Delaware)

“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.”

Freddy Carranza (James Madison University)

“It has been a great opportunity for me to do my Alternative Break with the Medici Project. Getting to see so many different social issues reaffirmed my ability to contribute something meaningful to domestic abuse victims and survivors alike.”

Emily Clouser (University of Delaware)

“My experience with the Medici Project allowed me to be more comprehensively understand a variety issues relating to public health. I was emotionally and mentally stretched throughout the week as I discovered new passions that I never even knew existed. It was a true blessing to be able to serve the beautiful city and people of Atlanta!”

Nikke Seletz (Ohio State)

“Working with Medici Project was truly the experience of a lifetime. Having the opportunity to connect with a such a diverse group of people helped me grow both as a leader and a person. I strongly recommend volunteering with Medici Project; it has inspired me to go out of my comfort zone and gain a greater understanding of the different cultures that surround us.”
