In 2010, Jan Masland, Director of Student Health and Wellness, introduced the Ware Institute to the Honduras CARE (Central American Relief Efforts) program. Since then, the Ware Institute has partnered with C.A.R.E. to offer this alternative spring break program.
The Honduras Alternative Spring Break Program exposes students to the public health and development fields, working in a socially disadvantaged country. Students are encouraged to contextualize and reflect on what they have learned each day in order to understand the effect of the work they are doing as well as the potential implications on their own lives.
This is a health-related alternative break for students interested in medicine, public health, and service to others. Spanish not required. CARE is a faith-based organization in Lancaster, PA which does not proselytize. It's mission is to mobilize volunteers and humanitarian aid in the United States to benefit populations in abject poverty in areas of Central America. Students are encouraged to visit CARE’s web site which provides valuable travel information and tips for this trip.
In the spirit of community solidarity and engaged learning, Ware Institute programs have a strict conduct policy and are drug free.
