MOVE’s Mission continues to expand the concept of community service to embrace social justice; this is the heart of our service trips. These trips cover a wide variety of different justice issues, as we strive to engage in justice through service. It is our opportunity to honor the life and dignity of others, understand a greater call to our community, advocate for those living in poverty, and begin living in solidarity with others whose life experiences may be different from ours.  

We currently work with organizations who work for the following justice issues:

Child Poverty and Education
Animal Rights
Environmental Justice
Migrant Farm Work
AIDs Rights
Rural poverty
Urban Poverty
Native American Rights 

Our Student and Staff Leaders organize time in service, reflection, and thinking about how to bring our serving actions back home. We currently send more than 125 students, faculty, and staff to 11 domestic locations, and two international sites, for service each year during school breaks.
