The students of the Humanitarian Experiential Leadership Program took on a mission at the Scott Mission serving the homeless and people in need.

“ When we walked through the doors everyone seemed very friendly!” Said Sofia Becerra before the day began.

The students are involved in a number of humanitarian activities but they are very passionate about helping the homeless. They did a number of tasks that day that impacted the lives of others in a greater way then they could ever imagine.

Many students had smiles on their faces throughout the day, loving what they were doing.

“The Scott Mission is a place you can count on for the simplest of things” Said Sarah Smibert, a student in the program.e

All of the students passionately believed in the change they were making and came together to make that change as a team when they divided up the tasks of the day.

The day consisted of helping out in the day care, preparing meals for the homeless, serving meals for the homeless, and cleaning up afterwards.

“I enjoyed being able to spend time serving people.” Said Sofia Becerra at the end of a long day’s work.

The students understood the meaning of the word poverty that day through the different people that came into the Scott Mission for support. Seeing all types of people from all different walks of life really put things in perspective. I was an insightful day for an egar class of students ready to help.
