Alternative Winter Break (AWB) offers two international trips and one domestic trip where participants strengthen communities.
These trips, occurring during the academic winter break, focus on many different social issues like education, affordable housing, environmental, and much more. Students learn to become citizens of the world through strong direct service and reflection. They also connect with other students who are looking to make a difference.
Students who are selected to serve on the trips participate in biweekly pre-trip meetings throughout fall semester to learn about the social issues involved, as well as the language and culture of the communities they will be serving (on international trips). Students also receive a free day during each trip to explore the local communities and enjoy the sites!
Our international winter break rotates between Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ecuador, and Mexico.
