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
