Alternative Break Trips

One week of service, a lifetime of experience!

The Alternative Break experience provides BW students with the opportunity to break from the norm and spend their college break serving with other students. Each trip is designed and led by a BW student. A BW faculty or staff advisor also participates with each trip. Trips happen during Thanksgiving break, Winter break, Spring break and Summer Break. 

Alternative Break trips are a great way to make a difference, travel to another area, learn new skills, and meet people with similar interests. Each of our AB trips are planned using Breakaway's 8 Quality Components Model. Learn more about the National Alternative Break movement here.

The Alternative Break team coordinated 8 Alternative Break trips during the 2014-2015 academic year and have 11 amazing trips in the works for 2015-2016. 

Thank you for a great year! Stay tuned for our 2015-2016 trip line-up!
