World Changing Service. Life Changing Experience.

Alternative Breaks is a student organization offering direct community service opportunities during every academic break, including Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Alternative Breaks takes groups of students, student leaders, and faculty/staff to communities across the country and the world to perform vital service alongside reputable non-profit organizations. Participants have the opportunity to engage in quality service, gain education about important social issues, and reflect on how we can create positive social change. Please use this website as a resource to learn about our trips, apply to join us on one of our next trips, or meet some of our student leaders. Join our movement of active citizenship as we strive to create sustainable change and fight social injustice in all communities.
