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 community-identified projects to address unmet social and environmental justice needs. “Alt Breaks” collaborate with non-profit organizations to promote lifelong service through service, education, and dialogue.
