Interested in the Navajo Service Learning program? Come by the UC on Tuesday the 22nd and Tuesday the 30th of this month. The instructor (Elizabeth Wilson) will be hosting an information table in the UC from 11:00-1:00 so you can ask questions about course times, registration, and anything else related to the program.
The Navajo Service Learning program has been active for 20 years and has changed the lives of many students. Participants who enroll in the course travel to the Navajo reservation in Lukachukai, Arizona, and volunteer their days chopping wood for village elders and mentoring Navajo schoolchildren in the classroom. In addition, excursions to traditional ceremonies, nearby towns, canyons and sweat lodges are made during free time. The beautiful red-rock desert landscape, blanketed in winter snow, makes this trip a wonderful opportunity for photography and scenic hikes as well as providing a valuable, needed service to the community. Come to the table to learn much more about this chance of a lifetime!
This is a two-part course, with several pre-trip meetings in Fall 2013. The travel portion will be during Winter 2014 and last approximately 3-4 weeks. Each part counts as two credits and fulfills the Civic Engagement undergraduate requirement.
