Alternative Spring Break

An Alternative Break is a week long service trip that occurs during a school break. A group of approximately ten students travel to a location to volunteer with a non-profit for the week. This type of trip is "alternative" because students volunteer during their school break instead of the usual student vacation activities. It is a service-learning trip, meaning students will volunteer as a group and reflect on the volunteer experiences each night. There is a $250 program fee for students. This fee covers the cost of transportation, lodging, meals during the week, and agency fees.

Last year SPSU traveled to Winston-Salem, NC during spring break to help Habitat for Humanity celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Habitat's Collegiate Challenge program by participating in a five-day blitz build! 9 students built a two story house with groups from other schools during the week and had an amazing experience.
