The Alternative Breaks program engages University of Utah students, faculty, and staff
in Justice work and experiential learning over school breaks. 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" collaborates with non-profit organizations to promote
lifelong activism through service, education, dialogue, and reflection.
