Each year, East Tennessee State University offers student led and developed service
breaks to locations in the United States. Each AB Experience typically consists of
8 student participants, two student co-leaders and a faculty or staff-learning partner.
Most breaks take place during the spring break period. However, we are hoping to offer
this opportunity during various ETSU academic breaks (Fall, Winter, Summer) in the
future. While working with multiple community service partners, East Tennessee State
University's Alternative Break Program trains and immerses students in a purposeful
service experience designed to connect fellow Buccaneer students and community members
while enhancing personal growth, mutual awareness and life-long learning.
Alternative Breaks provides accessible, quality service opportunities, education about
social issues, and exposure to diverse cultures and communities to promote the active
citizenship of ETSU students.
