VOLUNTEER FOR DUTCH SALVATION ARMY ON SPRING BREAK
Students will travel to Amsterdam for an "Alternative" Spring Break to study social service outreach by volunteering for the Dutch Salvation Army in Amsterdam.
Students will be exposed to the progressive Dutch views on homeless, prostitution, soft drugs, and prison parolees. Participating students will sign up for PLS 499 "NGOs and Social Service Outreach" for the Winter Quarter. This course will examine social service outreach from a comparative perspective. PLS 499 is a prerequisite course for the Amsterdam trip. Students that want to go on the Amsterdam trip must take this course. However, those who do not wish to go to Amsterdam may still take this course.
