Student Reflections

“This was a very informative and I got to learn a lot more about the Parkland community. I definitely loved the breakfast with community members.”

“I really enjoyed the EFN project because it was a great time to bond with the rest of the Parkland Immersion participants and to see the immediate impact of volunteering.”

“LOVED L’arche, it was just incredible there. I hope to volunteer again, and I hope the spring break parkland program goes there for many years to come. The final reflection was definitely a great way to wrap things up.”

“The two activities that resonated with me where working at Trinity’s community dinner and at L’Arche Farn because I got to connect with a lot of different people and see that we are all the same just in unique ways.”
