For many students spring break will consist of fruity drinks with tiny umbrellas, or a relaxing week at home; but the students who are apart of the CAVE Alternative Spring Break will be heading to Chicago, Illinois for the seven days to help build three homes.

CAVE works with the Habitat for Humanity organization to find projects to benefit certain communities.

According to a press release, from March 14 to 21, 13 students will be building three homes for a families in need and will also get to explore the city of Chicago; a place some of the students have never visited before.

The students will also get to meet one of the families they are building a home for.

“This is doing something meaningful with my spring break that can have both an impact on the volunteers and the community we serve all the while visiting a new place,” Vincent de la Torre, the trip leader, said.
