Alternative Spring Break: February 29 - March 9

Are you looking for something to do during Spring Break? Are you interested in service and learning? Are you interested in exploring the world of advocacy and activism in the United States?

Sign up for this year's Alternative Spring Break trip! This year's trip is called Impact in America: Exploration of Activism.

The trip happens February 29 through March 6. The cost is $65 (including food, lodging and travel) for a trip to Washington, D.C. and New York City. Students will be visiting lots of cool museums, activist organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign, and of course, doing service at local care facilities like soup kitchens, homeless shelters and much, much more!

Many students on the trip will also attend the IMPACT Conference, a student conference on civic engagement that happens March 7 through March 9 in Boston, MA. The cost is $30 to attend the conference.
