Alternative Breaks & Weekends

Connecting with Community, Learning About Complex Social Topics

Our weekend, fall break, and weeklong service immersion trips are designed to connect students with community members through engaging, experiential learning opportunities. These hands-on experiences prompt learning about community social topics, encourage self-understanding, and inspire commitment to future action.
