Inaugural Alternative Break Program

During the 2018 spring break, 19 students and two staff chaperones collaborated with Hands on Orlando and Orlando Rescue Mission to address homelessness and poverty in Orlando, Fla. Together they cleared land at a local park, prepared meals for families, beautified a playground area, sorted 13,000+ diapers and much more.

Make a Difference

Applications and pricing for the Alternative Break Program are available during the fall semester. For more information, email Allen Clarke, assistant director of Student Involvement and the Student Center.
