The Alternative Break 2018 trip application is due!
An alternative break is service-learning experience in which students travel to engage in direct-service. These trips are generally a week-long, and occur during spring or summer break. Each trip has a focus on a particular social issue and how it impacts the community. Through exploration and immersion into the social issue long before the trip starts, students are able to interrogate the root causes of social issues in a way that allows them to engage compassionately and think critically. Upon their return, students are encouraged to engage in their own communities through informed, meaningful action.
