Fundraising is an integral part of the Alternative Breaks experience. In order to keep the cost of each trip low for participants, the group will contribute their time throughout the school year to raise money.

Previous Trips

In 2019, a group of students traveled to Atlanta to work with the non-profit, Hands on Atlanta. The students got a chance to complete a variety of service projects like planting trees and packing food for people in need. The students also got to experience Atlanta and visit locations such as the Coca-Cola museum. 


Applications to attend an Alternative Break trip will open in the Fall of 2019 on Hatter Sync.
