Service-Learning in Puerto Rico

Ten Central Piedmont students and one Service-Learning Coordinator will spend spring break volunteering in Puerto Rico, as part of Central Piedmont’s International Alternative Spring Break. The island of Puerto Rico is considered a “commonwealth” of the United States, so students do not need their passports to travel. Our dedicated team will work at an orphanage and help rebuild communities hit by Hurricane Maria.

The Global Learning Office “Did you know?”… for the week:
Although Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens, they are not allowed to vote in presidential elections.
