About going on the trips...
“I saw firsthand what sorts of important things people could do working together for a common goal….Going on an Alt Break helped reinforce what I wanted to do after school. It assured me that I was on the right path.”
- Dave Gauger, Senior: Consumer Affairs
About being on the committee...
“Before I joined Alt Breaks, I was very shy; being in Alt Breaks has honed my communication skills, gave me more leadership opportunities than I’ve ever had, and gave me a deeper understanding of a basic, yet profound, concept: humans helping other humans…I’ve met so many people and learned just how open the world really is. There are people and places struggling everywhere, just waiting for your email or call offering help.”
- Liz Scheibe, Freshman, Orientation Speakers Coordinator
