Enjoy volunteering & helping others? Meeting new people & road trips? Learning about the community & issues that face our society?
It's not too early to think about your plans for winter or spring break! Come to our info night to learn more about Alternative Breaks (AB) at GVSU!
(This is the 1st Information night for the fall; the second event is held on Monday October 22nd- same time, same location! Attending an information night is not required for applying for an Alternative Break, however it is recommended!)
Alternative Breaks is a service learning organization on campus (affiliated with GVSU's Community Service Learning Center) that promotes active citizenship. This student run organization coordinates week-long service learning trips throughout the United States and are open to any GVSU student. Participating on an Alternative Breaks is a great way to learn about an issue close to your heart, meet new friends, have a fun & cost effective break, and build your resume!
At our information night you'll meet our site leaders (upperclassmen that lead our trips), learn about our various trips with themes (issues) ranging from hunger & homelessness, wildlife refuge, or youth & education, and application process.
An all inclusive fee of $250 covers all travel, food, and housing during the break. Fundraising opportunities, scholarships, payment plans help make our trips affordable for GVSU students.
