Alternative Spring Break
Alternative Breaks are student-driven community engagement programs that promote student leadership, ethical volunteering, and social justice. These programs aim to equip students with the tools, resources, and experience to be effective leaders and allies within their local and global communities.
While the main event happens over the week of spring break, where the team engages in activities and volunteer opportunities rooted in social justice, the team also meets throughout the academic year to plan and prepare for the trip, led by two student leaders.

- Reflect on injustices in your community and beyond
As an Alternative Spring Break Team Leader you will:
- Co-plan the program with assistance from The London Center
