Community Service Initiatives

Alternative Breaks at IC

Alternative Breaks Program is sponsored by the Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs that provides service opportunities for students who successfully apply for participation at a variety of sites across the eastern United States.

Our AB Mission:

Alternative Breaks (ASB) are held during the fall, spring, and summer breaks in order to give students the chance to gain personal and professional growth through direct volunteer experience, place-based learning, and teamwork. 

By participating in an AB trip students will:

  •  possess a stronger sense of personal civic identity upon completion of ASB
  •  identify ways to continue their involvement after ASB
  • develop an understanding of the communities and cultures where their service takes place
