Applications are still available for Alternative Break trips!

The Alternative Break program is centered on creating transformative, experiential learning experiences for students through regional, reciprocal campus-community partnerships. Alternative breaks aim to develop the capacity for students to lead for social change. Being immersed in community environments enables participants to experience, discuss, and understand social issues in a significant way.This is an opportunity to learn about yourself, challenge yourself, build community, gain leadership skills, and have fun!
