30logo Alternative Breaks

Your school breaks can change your life and help a community  when you spend that time on a transformative Alternative Break trip. The  Alternative Breaks Program engages University of Utah students, faculty and staff in community in volunteerism and experiential learning. Teams of students, along with faculty/staff partners, visit and work in cities throughout the Western United States on a variety of projects to address social end environmental justice.  “Alt Breaks” promote lifelong service through service, education, and dialogue.
