Want To Make A Difference This Spring Break?

  by mtvU.

We’re partnering with MTV and United Way to host Spring Fix, an alternative spring break, in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy. Beginning January 14th, college students can apply to be one of the 50 young people MTV will bring to the New York/New Jersey area to help rebuild communities devastated by the storm. Spring Fix, will kick-off on Sunday, March 17 and culminate on Saturday, March 23 with a special free concert at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. MTV cameras will be on the ground capturing all the Spring Fix activities, and the network expects celebrities, politicians and more to stop in and take part.

College students interested in participating in Spring Fix can submit applications online from January 14th to January 28, 2013 at United Way. Travel and accommodations will be covered for the 50 students selected. If you aren’t one of the 50 selected but still want to get involved, you will be able to find information about additional service opportunities for Hurricane Sandy relief right here in the weeks to come.

To thank the 50 students for their service, Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey will host a free “Spring Fix” concert on Saturday, March 23, 2013, the season opening of the park. Great Adventure attendees will also be able to attend the concert, and a portion of the proceeds from that day will be donated to United Way. Additional details on the “Spring Fix” concert and performers are coming soon so keep checking back here for new information.

It’s more than Spring Break, it’s SPRING FIX.

This promotion is being run by MTV in partnership with United Way. For inquiries about the application, please contact United Way at student@unitedway.org and for all other inquiries, please contact MTV at mtvspringfix@gmail.com.
