Alternative Break trips are centered on social issues and are service-learning experiences. The trips allow students to connect with different communities while working to create positive, sustainable change. These experiences are immersive and participants say they build lasting relationships with the other students on the trip.
This year’s trip will focus on assisting with natural disaster relief. Participants will work directly with the High Socks for Hope helping family’s get back into their homes. The application to join this year’s trip can be found on RamSpace here.
Benefits of participation:
