This Spring Break trip is customized for a high school symphonic orchestra class where they will learn and serve in our Nation’s Capital. During the week the team will visit a variety of the city’s most popular monuments and sights. In addition, during designated serve days students will also provide service to others while using their musical gifts and earn 15-20 community service hours for the week. If you want to make a difference in the lives of others while learning about our Nation’s history in beautiful D.C., this alternative spring break trip is for you!

SOME (So Others Might Eat) is an interfaith, community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation’s capital. We meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing, and health care. We help break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling, to the poor, the elderly and individuals with mental illness. Each day, SOME is restoring hope and dignity one person at a time.
