The CU Alternative Breaks (AB) program sends teams of college students to engage in community-based service projects during each college break. This program provides students with the opportunity to partake in meaningful service, reflect upon their experiences, and create long-lasting connections with others, all with the goal of creating active citizens. There are Spring Break and Weekend Break Trips available. We hope you’ll be a part of this experience!
In conjunction with meaningful service, each Alternative Breaks trip focuses on a social and environmental issue. This provides participants with an opportunity to positively impact a problem they may otherwise have no way of impacting.
Each Alternative Breaks trip is led by two Site Leaders and has 10 participants. Site Leaders are responsible for planning all aspects of an Alternative Breaks trip and there are many benefits to participating in an Alternative Breaks trip!
