Student Leadership Opportunities

Serve, Learn, Lead!


Alternative Break participants get the opportunity to focus on one of the four issue areas we will be focusing on this year and spend their Spring Break 2022 partnering with an organization that works within the same field! Some issue areas include: Housing and Food Insecurity (Organizations in DC), Community Empowerment and Sustainability (Plenitud in Puerto Rico), and Environmental Justice with a focus on farmer rights (Green Communities in Costa Rica).
