Several Fresno State students spend part of spring break serving the community

Local News

Some Fresno State students are spending part of their spring break serving the community.

It’s part of the Alternative Spring Break Program where students engage in community service projects throughout their week-long vacation.

This year, they partnered with the Boys and Girls Club and the Upper Merced River Watershed Council along with Wesley United Methodist Church.

That’s where they painted a mural.

“This is a community mural and the biggest thing that we are learning together is that there are no mistakes. So all the kids are welcome to paint and they know that this is their mark,” says Jaipriya Kaur, artist.

Organizers say the experience not only helps community organizations, it also helps the students develop skills and create professional connections.
