Living on an Island: An Intro to Privilege and Poverty in STL

Join us on a trip to the Clinton Peabody Housing District! We will begin this journey at Wash U and make our way downtown by Metrolink, learning about privilege and St. Louis transit all along the way. Upon arrival we will tour the community and play with kids from the neighborhood, leading into vital reflection and discussion time. By the end of the trip, each student should feel more comfortable with the city as a whole and the problems certain demographics face.

This excursion will be available for up to 25 students.

Physical requirements: There will be some walking involved.

Note: Students participating in this excursion are expected to bring a UPass since the group will take public transit to the excursion site. If this is an issue please notify the Meet St. Louis Coordinator at, immediately.
