Alternative Breaks

What are you doing for YOUR Break?
The Alternative Break program is an immersion experience into different cultural, environmental and socioeconomic communities across the nation. Students provide service in exchange for education about current social and cultural issues facing the host communities. Past trips have focused on such social/cultural issues as hunger, AIDS/HIV, housing, homelessness, issues facing Native American living on reservations, environmental conservation, education, economic sustainability, and women's issues.
Annually, approximately 200 Colorado State University students, ranging in age, major, upbringing, background, and interest, participate in an Alternative Break experience! This year, it could be YOU!
Service-learning trips occur during fall, winter, spring, and summer breaks at CSU. Ongoing meetings pre and post trip.
