Past Project

The trip consisted of seven days, with five days spent completing disaster recovery work totaling 360 hours of volunteer work. The students and Steve projects consisted primarily of debris removal from various sites around Joplin including the Elk's Lodge, one of the first places hit by the tornado. The volunteers also organized photo negatives at the Joplin Museum, spent time at the Joplin Humane Society, and assisted with the expansion efforts of the House of Hope, a teen counseling center.

The participants were able to build meaningful relationships with their fellow participants, and with those who were directly impacted by their service. Though the students identified the work they performed as challenging, it was clear to them their efforts were meaningful. All of the students indicated that the experience raised their awareness of the impact made by disasters and were able to recognize a positive impact as a result of their actions. All of the students also mentioned having fun and experiencing joy throughout their time in Joplin.
