Every person who goes on a Bear Breaks Immersion Trip is a Missouri State student, faculty, or staff member. The typical trip looks like this: 10 participants with 2 student Trip Leaders, and 2 Faculty/Staff Advisors. All participants and Trip Leaders apply at various times during the year due to high demand.
Participants should expect to engage in direct service, learn in-depth about different cultures, and discuss social issues and active citizenship. Upon their return from the trip, groups will look to address social issues in their own communities.
