MBMI/MBWI Spring Break Service Trip

Since 2009, the Mizzou Black Men’s Initiative (MBMI) has assisted in the successful transition of Black freshmen males into the collegiate environment by focusing on three pillars: support, development, and involvement. Its sister organization, the Mizzou Black Women’s Initiative (MBWI) was created in 2010 to equip African American female students with the appropriate tools to be successful leaders in their undergraduate careers and future endeavors through three guiding principles: academic support, social support, and professional development.

This year, MBMI and MBWI are working together to coordinate a service trip to Washington, D.C. March 22 – 27, 2018. Some of the highlights will include service opportunities related to veteran services, children, working with people with disabilities, networking with local college students in the area, and visiting the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
