To gain exposure to the world around them, Fellows go on at least eight major trips each year. During the summer, we travel to Ole Miss to experience college life for one week. We also take our summer program on two separate camping trips to civil rights monuments throughout the south.
Over Thanksgiving Break, we go on a three-day camping trip to a major college destination. Also in the fall, we go on two gender-specific camping retreats for group building exercises and more college visits.
During Spring Break, we go on a week-long drama tour to perform an original civil rights-based play for audiences throughout Texas.
Finally, at the end of each year, we take a group of students on an intense backpacking trip, affectionately known as the “hardcore trip.” Together, we have climbed mountains in Georgia, Tennessee and Arkansas!
