Under the leadership of the Colby Volunteer Center, eleven Colby students are representing the College in New York City as they engage in a week’s worth of civic engagement activities during Spring Break 2010. More than just an isolated trip, however, the Colby ASB program also included a seminar series presented by Dr. Adam Howard of the Education Department. Participants engaged the issue of urban poverty in the United States from multiple perspectives, so they will be better able to contextualize their immersion experience throughout the week.
