Alternative Break trips - Break from the norm!

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 led by a BW student. A BW faculty or staff advisor also participates with each trip.

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

The 2014-2015 Leadership Team is working hard to plan impactful trips for the upcoming Alternative Break season.
