When you apply for an Alternative Break and make your deposit, you commit to attend all pre-trip meetings, participate fully in your trip, engage meaningfully with your peers, display an openness to learning, and expand your comfort zone. (The only exception to the aforementioned would be a conflicting class during any of our events.)
How to Apply
The application itself is relatively simple, but we do suggest that students hold about 20 minutes to complete it. In the application, you'll be asked questions regarding your trip interest, what you hope to gain from the experience, and your anticipated group contributions based on your experiences and knowledge. You’ll also let us know if you’re interested in more than one trip (so that we can place you into one of your other choices in case a trip fills) and share some basic personal information.
Please note that in order to complete your application you must also submit your deposit ($50 for Alternative Break trips).
Application will be open February 15- April 18 (9 AM) and can be accessed online here. Visit our events page for important dates and deadlines.
