Alternative Breaks

Alternative Break ("Alt Break" for short) is a unique service immersion program hosted by the department of Spirituality, Service & Social Justice during the fall and spring breaks.  What social justice issues are especially relevant in Tacoma?  Alt Break will give you the chance to learn about & address the issues our community faces.

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

Please email Sarah Shives (sshives@pugetsound.edu) with questions or to get on our email list.

Interested in participating in a service program but unable to commit to an Alternative Break program? Join us for the MLK Day of Service, each year on the day before Spring semester commences.
