For Seattle Pacific University (SPU) students, their spring break consists of spending five days on Seattle streets, living like homeless people.
The project of living in someone else's homeless shoes is called Urban Plunge. Students have gained insight into what being homeless means and have appreciated the lessons they have learned along the way.
The Larder Cook School in West Lothian is a social enterprise that trains young people for a career in the food business. Recently, the school has launched a crowdfunder to help it teach another 80 students a year.
