Engage with Community Issues through Service
Alternative Breaks is an opportunity for K-State students to participate in an intensive service experience during your winter, spring, and weekend breaks. Travel to sites around the midwest where you will work with local residents to learn how communities are addressing pressing social issues. Breaks are open to K-State undergraduate, graduate, and international students.
Strengthen Your Leadership Skills
Alternative breakers learn through service. You will be challenged to prepare, act, reflect, and evaluate your service experience. This approach to service is more than volunteering, it allows you to better understand community impact and builds your personal leadership practice.
"I feel like I talk about wanting social change so much that if I can't give up a spring break, do I really value it? -- Alternative Breaks participant
