Miner Challenge is Missouri S&T's Alternative Break Program. Every year, students engage in immersive volunteer experiences across the U.S. and abroad over Spring Break. Participants bond with a small team while they develop leadership skills, gain awareness of social issues, and work to improve communities.
Unfortunately, in an effort to reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19, Miner Challenge volunteer trips scheduled for Spring Break 2020 have been cancelled as part of Missouri S&T's cancellation of all university-sponsored events and in-person classes for Spring semester. While our teams are very disappointed to not be able to travel to various locations across the US and in Costa Rica and volunteer with the social issues that they have been discussing throughout the year, we understand the importance of doing our part to reduce the spread of disease. Miner Challenge would like to thank all of our donors and supporters this year from the bottom of our hearts. We are very thankful for the money you donated and/or helped us raise, which will now go towards our program expenses next year and enable us to offer expanded scholarships to students next year. We are currently working on engaging our teams by challenging them to take action from their own homes to make a positive community impact. We are also conducting our search for next year's leaders who will continue to create great experiences for our students!
