The NYU Alternative Breaks Program gives students the opportunity to participate in a yearlong experience exploring social, political, and cultural dynamics of a community. Each year, over 280 students travel throughout the world to spend their winter break, spring break and weekends working with various host communities on such issues as literacy, poverty, homelessness, racism, immigration, disaster relief, and the environment. Through learning and practice, students explore the theory of integrating service, education, and reflection to create meaningful change in their communities. Contributions to this Fund help to underwrite expenses for students participating in the NYU Alternative Breaks Program.
As with any volunteer program, cost is a factor. The Alternative Breaks Program is partially subsidized by the NYU Center for Student Activities, Leadership and Serivce, but each student accepted into the program must fundraise to help underwrite their experience. The NYU Center for Student Activities, Leadership and Service and the Alternative Breaks Program welcomes your support by making a tax-deductible gift to the NYU Alternative Breaks Program. Any support you can offer is greatly appreciated!
