Alternative Break programs let you volunteer, perform community service and have unique learning opportunities during your school breaks.

By spending time immersed in a new community, you’ll learn about your role as a global citizen, make new friends and connections, and discover how you can become an agent of change.

The projects that students participate with address issues such as: Education, Gender Equality, the Environment, Homelessness, Hunger, Literacy, and Poverty.

After your trip, you’ll be able to share the lessons you learned with your local community, and continue to lead a life of active citizenship.

This year's 2020 trips include:

  • New Orleans, LA - January 19-25
  • Dominican Republic - March 14-21
  • Washington. DC - March 15-21
  • Buffalo, NY - March 16-20
