Welcome to The SEEDS Project!
SEEDS is an alternative spring break organization at the University of Richmond. We focus on engaging students in meaningful and sustainable service projects as well as dialogue centered around the social justice and environmental issues that face the communities we serve in. Each year, we offer three alternative spring break trips in three different locations around the U.S. – the Gulf Region of Louisiana, the Appalachian Region of West Virginia, and the Detroit area of Michigan. We also offer one alternative fall break trip into our very own city of Richmond to explore the connections between similar issues in various contexts around the United States.
We are so excited to share some of our 2016 highlights with y’all and what we’re looking forward to in 2017! Please take a peek at our January 2017 Newsletter to see what we were up to last year.
Our application for the 2017 spring break trips is closed. Please be sure to check back in October of 2017 for the application for the 2017-18 trips.
