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 of social awareness and inspire lifelong action and friendships.

Alternative Service Breaks provide a variety of week-long 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. Trip costs are $300 for 2020, costs include lodging, travel, meals except on travel days, and partner fees. Questions or concerns please email
