Alternative Breaks

The Alternative Breaks program encourages students to learn while becoming catalysts for collaborative change. Last year, hundreds of NYU students traveled across the world to spend their winter and spring breaks working within various communities on issues including literacy, disaster relief, and social justice. Global Spiritual Life is proud to host Alternative Break opportunities for students interested in multifaith dialogue and engagement.
