Georgetown University offers over 25 opportunities to serve domestically and abroad during Spring Break. Through the Center for Social Justice, and with campus partners including Campus Ministry, the Kalmanovitz Initiative and more, over 300 Georgetown students, faculty and staff mobilize across the country and globe to serve.
The Alternative Breaks Program provides students with opportunities for social justice immersion in communities across the United States during one week in March. Currently, the Program supports over 20 trips that examine a diverse set of social justice issues ranging from poverty to prison reform. No matter how far participants travel on Alternative Breaks, whether it may be to Detroit, New Orleans, Tucson, or to Wheeling, West Virginia, all participants travel and serve under the guidance of the same five Alternative Break pillars: justice immersion, cultural immersion, service, reflection, and substance-free fun.
Georgetown University Global Brigades (GUGB) is a CSJ student organization that plans week-long service trips to international underserved communities focusing on healthcare, clean water, and public health.
