Full-time Staff or Faculty Member Needed for Fall Break Community Service Trip

08/12/2013

Contributed by Don Austin

The Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs is seeking one full-time staff or faculty member to serve as an adviser for a group of six students participating in a service trip to the Syracuse Rescue Mission during Fall Break (October 17 - 20).

The primary role of the trip adviser is to assure that students maintain respect for the organizations they serve, uphold the program's substance free policy, make sure that the group manages its program finances responsibly, assists with group reflection sessions, and assists with driving responsibilities. 

The trip is at no cost to the adviser. All expenses are covered.

Below you will find information about the trip.

The Rescue Mission (Syracuse, NY)

The Rescue Mission, located in the Mission District of Syracuse, is just outside of the downtown area. The RM campus has an emergency shelter, day center and serves three meals a day at their food services center. On any given night, they have over 250 men sleeping under our roof. Each day, they serve over 725 meals to men, women and children who are hungry.  In 2012, they gave away over 70,000 pieces of clothing to those in need. This is truly an amazing resource in the Syracuse area, and Ithaca College students will have the opportunity to learn more about how the organization serves its area during this trip.

If you are interested in advising the Fall Break trip to the Rescue Mission, please contact Don Austin at austin@ithaca.edu at your earliest convenience.
