Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center
Criminal Justice Immersion Program
PKG Spring Break connects undergraduate students to complex social issues and the practitioners addressing them. It creates an opportunity for students to explore the context around these topics and learn how they can better collaborate on these efforts in the future. Teams of MIT students are paired with community organizations and students learn firsthand about complex social issues impacting communities while learning the work that is being done to address those challenges.
