Alternative Service Breaks

The mission of the University of North Texas' Alternative  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 of social awareness and inspire lifelong action and friendships.

Alternative  Breaks provide a variety of service opportunities. These opportunities not only contribute to a deeper understanding of social issues, service and community but are often the sparks that motivate people to get involved in community service. Experiences will be at no cost for 2021. Questions or concerns please email
