UB law student Kush Patel receives instruction on how to build a gravel pathway from Dave Landymore of the 6th Branch.
Over spring break, groups of UB law students help improve the quality of life for Baltimore residents, especially those in the neighborhoods around UB.
As part of the Human Rights Alternative Spring Break Project, the law school team has undertaken several community service projects, including cleaning up Ambrose Kennedy Park, which is only a few blocks from the University. The volunteers completely transformed the park—building a path, creating green spaces where trees and shrubs will be planted, and helping to assemble a tire pyramid for kids to play on.
Other projects have included volunteering at Baltimore City food pantries and with Baltimore's Safe & Sound Campaign, which works with recently released prisoners as they reenter society. At Safe & Sound, students reviewed clients' resumes conducted mock interviews.
