During the day, the team will be serving in various volunteer opportunities at Colonia Infantil, a malnutrition center in San Juan, to help meet the needs of children suffering from malnutrition. In addition to spending time helping and playing with the kids, there will also be gardening, maintenance, light construction, and organizational projects around the community that students can assist with. There's something for everyone! The Center currently has around 40 children in its care ranging from newborn to 10 years of age.

Open to all incoming students (both traditional & transfer students) & all majors! There is an application process. All applications are due by April 2nd.
