"The iCLE spring break trip opened my eyes to the various ways in which people are working to build stronger, more sustainable communities and empower neighborhoods." - Yale University student 

"I feel that sometimes, as natives of a certain city or place, we can easily become comfortable and complacent, not necessarily making efforts to expand our understanding of our hometowns. I am grateful for this opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and learn more about the city of my current residence." - Case Western Reserve University student
