As a participant, you get to experience our service-learning trips first-hand! Complete with all of our 8 Components, including strong direct service, reflection, education, training and many more!
Remember, these trips are meant to be service AND learning experiences. So, approach this as an opportunity to not only contribute directly to a pressing social justice issue, but also a chance to widen your perspective, evaluate your personal values, and make informed, socially-conscious decisions in the future as a global citizen, volunteer, career professional! That's what Alternative Breakers call Active Citizenship!
