Alternative Service Breaks
The mission of the University of North Texas' Alternative Service Breaks Program is to raise awareness of social issues and injustices through education and intensive service learning experiences. Students are immersed in communities that will bring to the forefront social awareness and inspire lifelong action and friendships.
Alternative Service Breaks provide a variety of low cost, week long service opportunities. These opportunities not only contribute to a deeper understanding of social issues, service and community, but are often the sparks which motivate people to get involved in community service.
