Spring Participant Application 2014

The Center for Civic Engagement sponsors a program called Alternative Break, where students spend college breaks traveling to national and international destinations to participate in community service, explore exciting places, and make new friends! All trips are led and planned by students and are completely substance-free.

This year’s service immersion experiences will explore issues related to education and English literacy, healthcare access, urban agriculture, organic farming, and activism/community development. Stay tuned for more information regarding information sessions to be held in October!
