What is Alternative Break?

Meet the 2016 Alternative Break Team!

The goal of the Alternative Break Program is to give students a chance to have a positive impact on another community through hands-on-service projects. You can help be a part of the solution!

Every year the LIVE Program takes a group of students on a different type of service-learning trip. Check out the side bar to look at our past trips!

Josh Hovis, Advisor

Josh began his life at Wood Center as a rabid volunteer in the Student Activities Office and as a member of the Nanook Traditions Board. After graduating with a double major in Sociology and Fun he joined the Wood Center staff in September of 2011 as the Student Organizations Coordinator and couldn't be happier. Working with clubs and organizations gives him an outlet for his energy and passion. He has spent almost every winter in Alaska and most summers somewhere else journeying and adventuring the world. Although he doesn't keep candy in his office, he'll help you raid the other Wood Center offices in hunt of your favorite treat. 

Grace Weller, Team Co-Lead

Hey! my name's Grace and I grew up on a small island in Southeast Alaska called Petersburg. I love sports and I live for the outdoors. I represent the Alaska Nanooks as a cross country runner,  I am vice president of the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, and I also am on the Nanook traditions board. Volunteering for my community back home has been a huge part of my life and my goal is to give back to the Fairbanks community as well. If you need to find me I am most likely in the LIVE office, or scavenging for candy in one of the other offices. Feel free to stop by!
