Each trip will be housed together with their site leaders for the entirety of the program. Participants will stay in on-campus housing at any point, but instead will be housed in communtiy buildings (including churches and YMCAs) near their service locations. The 7 Generations program cannot provide housing for any nights before or after the official program dates.
7 Generations begins and ends at Blow Memorial Hall (262 Richmond Rd.) and participants are responsible for all travel to and from the program. If students drive themselves to the program, they will be able to store their cars here for the week. The local Amtrak and bus station is also within walking distance to campus (468 N. Boundary St. Williamsburg). If participants are flying into the program, we suggest either the Newport News or Richmond Airport. Both offer ground transit options to and from campus.
Close to the start date of the program, all participants will be asked to report their transportation plans, and students traveling to the same airport or train station will be notified if they are interested in travelling together.
The total 7 Generations program fee is $175 which is made in two payments: an initial deposit of $75 and a final payment of $100. Dates for both payments are posted on the main page when the program is accepting applications in June. Financial aid is available, and applications for aid will be on the main website when program applications are being accepted. Please write checks to The College of William & Mary and mail to Office of Community Engagement, Blow Hall 326a, College of William & Mary, PO Box 8795, Williamsburg, VA 23187. You will receive an email confirmation of payment.
