Spring Break 2015 Trips are in the Planning Stages...

Spring Break Trips  are timed to coincide with the UW Spring Break each spring semester.  Spring Break Trips are our most popular (generally we get approximately 3 applications for each available spot in our Spring Break Trips offerings). Volunteers work on a variety of projects including environmental restoration, understaffed soup kitchens, initiatives to reduce homelessness and those with special needs. If you are looking for something more than PCB for your Spring Break, check out what Alt Breaks has to offer. 

Summer Break Trips typically take place right after the end of the spring semester and international trips are frequently more than one week in length.  The application for Trips is usually available approximately six weeks before the last class day, however the timing of Spring Break can effect the decision on when to make the application available.

Acceptance and participation in a Winter or Spring Break Trip does not preclude participation in future trips. Being an active Alternative Breaks Committee member through planning a trip, can help guarantee your place on that, or another trip offered through Alternative Breaks.
