Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas
July 7-12, 2019
What is Heifer Ranch?
Heifer Ranch is one of three learning centers operated by Heifer International. It’s experiential education is aimed to inspire, challenge and engage people to end hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth.
What Will Our Time There Be Like?
We will be participating in the Alternative Break, which focuses on the core components of an introduction to Heifer International, service learning, educational activities and taking action. This is obtained through a variety of experiential activities such as teambuilding development, educational sessions, overnight village experience and hands-on service projects – in the Garden, Maintenance and Livestock Departments. All are designed to increase our understanding of the global hunger and poverty issues that Heifer International encounters in the field.
By experiencing these activities, not only will our group grow and develop together, but we will gain a greater understanding of how Heifer creates lasting change in communities around the world. Finally, their thoughtfully- produced and delicious meals will fuel our minds and bodies and complete their immersion into daily life here on the ranch. All meals, except during the global village experience, are served cafeteria style in the Dining Hall.
Sign up by Wednesday, October 17. All those who attend must also have completed a 2018-2019 Youth Liability Waiver.
