Vanderbilt University undergraduates, members of the Vanderbilt Chapter of Best Buddies, and students in Next Steps at Vanderbilt (a 2-year college certificate program for students with intellectual disabilities in Nashville, TN) traveled to Denver and Miami over Spring Break to do community service work, including cleaning in the Everglades, working at a downtown Miami homeless shelter, helping at a Denver food bank, and helping with the Colorado Special Olympics Winter Games. A special treat of the Miami trip was meeting with Anthony Shriver, founder and leader of Best Buddies International. View photographs from the alternative spring break trips at the link above.
