Students spend college breaks traveling to domestic and international destinations to participate in community service, explore exciting places, and make new friends! Through a rigorous education component, direct service and reflection, College of Charleston Alternative Break members promote self-awareness, respect for diversity, and become civic-minded individuals who are conscious of social issues and the importance of being an active citizen.

Alternative Break provides students with multiple opportunities to serve a different communities and address a variety of social issues. Through intentional pre-departure meetings, participants are exposed to the importance of education, orientation, training, and reflection.
