The Alternative Break program is an immersion experience into different cultural, environmental and socioeconomic communities across the nation. Students provide service in exchange for education about current social and cultural issues facing the host communities. Past trips have focused on such social/cultural issues as hunger, AIDS/HIV, housing, homelessness, issues facing Native American living on reservations, environmental conservation, education, economic sustainability, and women’s issues.
On average, it costs a student $950 to participate in an Alternative Break trip. To find more about Alternative Breaks and their upcoming trips, visit our website: http://www.slice.colostate.edu/alternative-break-locations.aspx
