Alternative Spring Break Program

Alternative Break Programs are intended to challenge you to reflect critically upon your role in the community through service, activism, inquiry and leadership. Trips provide opportunities to explore social, economic, political and cultural issues through unique immersion experiences that facilitate critical thinking and the exchange of ideas.
