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