Alternative Breaks

Alternative Break ("Alt. Break" for short) is a unique service and social justice immersion program hosted by the Office of Spiritual Life & Civic Engagement during the fall and spring breaks.  Thematically based, Alt. Breaks provide students an opportunity to engage with a particular area of social justice and service on a deeper level than one-time lectures or community service events allow for.  Learn about what social justice issues are especially relevant in Tacoma and how they fit into broader nation-wide or global issues.  

Previous themes include: Sustainable Food Justice, Justice and Service in Tacoma, Immigration, and Service in Seattle.
