Our Mission

Alternative Breaks promotes active citizenship within the student body through community-based service-learning projects that focus on social and environmental topics.

Our Vision

Alternative Breaks envisions a community of active citizens, empowered through service-learning, who value the community as a priority when making life decisions.

About Us

Alternative Breaks is a student-led organization that has been a part of Grand Valley State University student life since 1991. Like our parent organization, Break Away, we strive to create a society of active citizens who make community a priority in their values and life decisions.

We coordinate week-long service trips during winter, spring, and summer break. These trips are affordable, take place across the country, and focus on different social and environmental topics. We also create education and service opportunities in our local community through Service Saturdays, Transformation Tuesdays, and other events.

Connect with us online! 

You can find us on OrgSync, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. #GVAB
