Tell Students: Alternative Break Service Trip Application Deadline - February 16

Applications are being accepted until Friday, February 16, for three of the Civic and Community Engagement Office's Alternative Break 2018 service trips. The Alternative Break program provides students with an opportunity to engage in hands-on learning and service, critical reflection, and team building. Each trip is focused on a social issue that students investigate before and during the trip experience through conversations with community members, community organizations, and volunteer projects that meet community need.

Any Buffalo State student is welcome to join us on any of the following service trips:

  • Alternative Spring Break: Taking Steps to Conserve the Environment at Sky Meadows State Park, Virginia
    Assist with environmental conservation projects with this state park, such as hiking trail restoration, tree planting, and habitat restoration. 
  • Alternative Summer Break: Strategies to Combat Human Trafficking in Baltimore, Maryland
    Learn how human trafficking affects every community and assist organizations as they care for community members who have been affected by the issue. 
  • Alternative Summer Break: Community Actions in Food Justice in Detroit, Michigan
    Spend a week of summer break collaborating with urban farms, food banks, and nonprofits working to end food deserts and bring healthful, affordable food to residents.

More information can be found on the CCE website.
