Students Creating Positive Change

Many college students place high value on justice and making a difference in the world. These students seek hands-on opportunities to do something significant to improve the lives of others. The Unto™ partnership with Cru® campus and international field staff members positions us to provide opportunities for students to make an impact on people across the globe and in the U.S.

We accomplish this through the provision of humanitarian aid and activities focused on improving quality of life by relieving suffering and restoring dignity. Your campus partnership with Unto can create positive change in individuals, families, and communities.

Involving Campus Students

Your campus organizations can choose to partner with Unto through multiple activities that flow into one or more of our three ministry programs — Food and Agriculture, Clean Water, and Critical Aid. Let us serve you by providing opportunities for students to have a hands-on humanitarian experience. Contact us to learn more about our global ministry activities.

Spring Break Refugee Care (Cru Campus Students)

img_5052In recent years, news broadcasts have been filled with stories of violence in the Middle East — especially Syria — and of the resulting refugee crisis. Syrian men, women, and children flee from their homes, jobs, and friends, hoping to escape war and poverty. More than 1 million refugees traveled through Turkey, piled into small, overcrowded rubber boats, and faced the dangerous journey across the Aegean Sea to the shores of Greece. They hoped to pass through the islands and continue into Europe.

However, most European countries have closed their borders leaving the refugees trapped in camps — unable to travel to a new destination and powerless to return home.

You can help meet physical needs and show the kindness of Jesus to struggling refugees by traveling with Unto™ to a camp in Greece.

You will serve refugees by distributing aid such as blankets or food or doing chores in the camp. Your presence and help will show refugees that they are loved and cared for.

Participants on this trip must be 18 years or older to serve in the camp and participants must be able to work on their feet eight hours at a time.

Zambia Vision Clinics

Zambia, a beautiful country of great diversity, has more than 70 ethnic groups and languages. It also has one of the world’s fastest growing populations, which contributes to high rates of poverty and unemployment. Unto partners in Zambia help people there by providing necessary supplies such as clothing, food, seeds, and medical equipment. You can help by taking part in vision clinics to provide needed glasses.

During the clinics, you will meet with people one-to-one to assess their vision and fit them with glasses. As you spend time with them, you’ll have the opportunity to show the kindness of Jesus. By providing glasses through these clinics, you also will be helping our partners build stronger relationships in the communities so they can continue to meet critical needs and share the hope of Jesus.

 No medical experience is required. At the beginning of the trip, participants will receive training for vision testing and fitting eyeglasses.
