Pipeline Project Alternative Spring Break

The Pipeline Project is excited to announce that our applications for our 2018 Literacy Arts Alternative Spring Break Program are open! Looking for a meaningful way to spend your spring break? Look no further!

Pipeline recruits a group of UW undergraduates to volunteer on a Literacy Arts project with elementary, middle or high school kids in rural and tribal communities around Washington during spring break. The UW students are sent out in groups of 5 to 8 sites to help young students come up with an idea for a book, write a rough draft, edit the draft, and print and bind a single-signature book. The young students illustrate their published book and present it to the community at the end of the week.

Our application is open now and will close on Monday November 27th at 5:00pm! After that, we will review applications on a rolling admission. If you have any questions feel free to email us at pipeline@uw.edu. You can apply at http://expd.uw.edu/pipeline/alternative-spring-break/literacy-arts-asb/
