SPRINT: Seattle Pacific Reach-out International
SPRINT 2018 Trip to Colombia!
For three weeks in the summer of 2018, SPRINT is spending time in Barranquilla, Colombia! Barranquilla, a city on the northern Atlantic coast, is a great place for our team to engage in social change themes of community development, faith & social justice, education, and peace.
SPRINT is partnering with Corporacion Universitaria Reformada (Reformed University) and will be working with their language program and a neighbor youth enrichment program. Over several years, we have developed a relationship with this partner including hosting students from Reformed University in 2017 for the annual Perkins Lecture Series.
Team members have begun their fundraising. You can support our SPRINTers for their life-changing experience by donating towards their trip costs. Donations are tax-deductible according to applicable tax laws.
For our campus community, they are participating in several fundraisers. Look out for an opportunity to buy donuts, tulips, pies, and other great products!
Staff and faculty are invited to hire a SPRINTer for odd-jobs (e.g. yardwork, filing, organizing) through our "workshare" program. Simply complete and submit a workshare request form and we'll be in touch!
SPRINT Care Bags
Support SPRINT by ordering a care bag for your student! Care bags are filled with various treats that your student is sure to love. Care bags are $10 per bag and are available to order for students living in SPU student housing. Proceeds from your purchase will support students' fundraising as they prepare for their trips.
