Staley School Service Teams
Alternative Breaks and International Service Teams are the two interdisciplinary programs that make up the Staley School Service Teams. These two service-learning programs mobilize teams of K-State students to serve in communities across the United States and around the world during their academic breaks.
Service Teams build their curriculum around the Service-Learning Model and challenge volunteers to prepare, act, reflect and evaluate their service experiences. This learning approach to service tests the vounteer mindset and allows students to expand both their community impact and personal growth throughout the experience.
Through Alternative Breaks, students have the opportunity to travel across the United States for up to one week during winter and spring breaks or for a weekend during various times of the year. Through International Service Teams, students travel to sites around the world for up to 10 weeks during the summer.
You can help support the Service Teams at the Staley School by donating through the Kansas State University Foundation. Visit our Foundation page today to learn more about how to support our programs.
