With the cooler air of Fall upon us and the stress of a semester almost done, many of you are probably thinking break + spring! Some of you will head south to Mexico, some to the east and the beaches of Florida. Spring Break is a ritual that is sacred to the college student. After all those months of hard work you deserve to have some fun. Beaches, warm weather and dancing until 4am does sound like fun, but remember when we talked about money management….the average spring breaker will spend about $967 for that glorious week in paradise.
What if I told you that you could go somewhere for spring break with friends for $200 or less….what if I told you that you could spend one week helping others, having fun and building your resume….well, you can!
Alternative Spring Break is your chance to go somewhere, make a difference and challenge yourself. Memphis, Gulfporta and Kansas City are not your typical college spring break destinations, but there are people who need your help. Alternative Breaks provide a variety of low cost, week long and weekend service opportunities. There is no more powerful service experience than when students are fully immersed in new communities and social issues. These opportunities not only contribute to a deeper understanding of social issues, service and community, but are often the sparks which ignite people to get involved in community service.
