Alt Break

UCI Alternative Break Program (Program on Hold for 2021-2022)

  • An alternative break program places teams of college students in communities to engage in community service and experiential learning.

  • Students perform short-term projects for community agencies and learn about issues such as literacy, poverty, racism, hunger, homelessness and the environment.

  • The objectives of an alternative break program are to involve college students in community-based service projects and to give students opportunities to learn about the problems faced by members of communities with whom they otherwise may have had little or no direct contact.

  • The intensity of the experience increases the likelihood that participants will transfer the lessons learned on-site back to their own communities even after the alternative break end.
