Eco Spring Break


HBCU Eco Spring Break is a service-learning experience held in Senegal, West Africa, in partnership with REDES Eco-villages. It involves hands-on projects at eco-villages, guided tours, cultural immersion, and visits to historical sites. The initiative aims to promote sustainable living practices, restore ecosystems, and provide education and income opportunities for local communities.


Eco Spring Break offers students, faculty, and alumni the chance to contribute to sustainable development and gain firsthand experience in addressing environmental challenges. It fosters cross-cultural exchange, raises awareness about climate change's impacts, and encourages a deeper understanding of sustainable lifestyles.
