Alternative Breaks

Join the Movement!

AB 2019

The Alternative Breaks program is a unique learning experience in which students engage in active service to address some of the most pressing social issues of our time. Throughout the trip, participants take part in educational and reflective activities, as well as service opportunities in order to enhance their service experience.

Experiences are student-led and allow students to learn about root issues and gain new perspectives on issues. Students will be able to have time to reflect and think critically about social issues, develop into life-long citizens and make connections with fellow Buccaneers and community members.

Alternative Breaks locations are organized by the Leadership Team and can vary from year to year. Students address a variety of social issues that include disaster relief, environmental restoration, HIV/AIDS, homelessness, poverty, youth development, religious pluralism, food insecurity and many more!

If you have any questions or would like to become a member of Alternative Breaks, please contact .
