Service trip- S.E.E.D. School of Maryland
The VT BMEN Service Trip will be in Baltimore, Maryland and will take place during Spring Break from Sunday, March 5th– Tuesday, March 7th. During this trip we will provide workshops, professional development and mentor with middle school/ high school students at the S.E.E.D. School of Maryland (http://www.seedschoolmd.org/). At the school we will facilitate workshops on college readiness and spend time engaging with their students in many ways. This will be a bonding experience for Virginia Tech students as well as an opportunity to ‘give back’.
