Alternative Spring Break

What is Alternative Spring Break?

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

Every year the Student Leadership and Involvement Office takes a group of students somewhere outside of Alaska (sometimes outside of the United States!) to do a week of service work over Spring break. These trips are an amazing experience to make friends, experience new cultures, and to understand what service leadership means.  

The 2018 Alternative Spring Break location has been decided! We will be going to Houston, Texas to help with hurricane recovery. For more information on being apart of this year's AB team, or on how to donate to the trip, please visit our page on OrgSync.

Donate to Alternative Spring Break

Under "Gift Designation" please write UAF Alternative Spring Break Support. 

Each year we undergo the task of fundraising close to $20,000 to travel with students outside of Fairbanks to do service work! Your donations make all the difference to students who are committed to giving back. Alternative Spring Break starts students on a life long path of community service. Check out our OrgSync events page to keep track of the many fundraisers we host each year to raise this money!
