Join the national movement of college students making a difference during their academic breaks. Explore a social justice issue, immerse yourself in a community, and apply your knowledge. Alternative Breaks takes teams of students to various areas throughout the Western United States on 1-2 week service learning trips, exploring the complexities of social issues by allowing students to work, eat, and live with people who are directly impacted by racism, poverty, and other injustices. Students prepare for trips through a 2-unit DECal. Financial aid is available for all trips. Participants often come away from these experiences with a new perspective on social justice not only on the trips, but also in their own communities.
