As some of you know, I recently had the privilege to go on an alternative spring break volunteer trip with Alternative Spartan Breaks . I traveled with a group of 9 other MSU students, and 1 adult, to Monteverde Costa Rica. We spent the week working on a local sustainable coffee farm; interacting with their migrant workers, picking/sorting coffee, and doing other misc. farm chores. Long story short, it was one of the best weeks of my life and I wanted to share my experience to inform others on what to expect and encourage everyone out there to push themselves and volunteer in a foreign country!
