Apply for a 2022 Alternative Break Trip!

Posted by Tim on October 25, 2021 in Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

What is an Alternative Break Trip? Alternative Break programs let you volunteer, perform community service and have unique learning opportunities during your winter break or spring break. By spending time immersed in a community, you’ll learn about your role as a global citizen, make new friends and connections, and discover how you can become an agent of change. After your trip, you’ll be able to share the lessons you learned with your local community, and continue to lead a life of active citizenship. Hear from a past participant HERE!

Who Can Go? Any UB student can apply for the Alternative Break program. Each Alternative Break trip typically has 8-15 student participants, two student Team Leaders and two Staff Advisers.

What is the program schedule? Throughout the week, each team will participate in multiple half days of service (typically mornings) and then a half day of tourism, exploration and team building. In the evening there will be group meals and nightly reflections. You must commit to participating in the entire trip.
