Program Description:

Orlando, FL – Great Lakes Urban
Program Overview
Theme: Community Development, ABCD Model
During our time in Orlando, we will immerse into an African American community. This trip has a strong emphasis on assessment development, understanding the difference between relief and development, immersion in a new culture, personal growth, and forming a community. We also have a "fun day" planned either to the beach or some fresh water springs. It should be a ton of fun as well as impactful. Site Host: The two organizational hosts will be the Well of Hope Community Church and The Polis Institute, which work throughout the Orlando area.

Housing Arrangements: The church is a large facility with plenty of space to house a large group. Students will need to bring their own bedding and air mattress if desired.
Student Experiences:
“Through my Immersion Trip, I have been challenged to see God in everyone I meet! Whether that is a child with a terminal illness or a member of a church we helped, we are all His beloved children.”
-Junior, Sidney

"I learned to be less selfish in my faith. Rather than hoping others
see Christ in me and my works, looking for Christ in others and seeing God in all people and things."
-Junior, Anne
