Serve for a Week
Georgetown University offers over 20 opportunities for deep immersion 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 200 Georgetown students, faculty and staff mobilize across the country and globe to immerse themselves and learn about communities and the social injustices they face.
The Alternative Breaks Program provides students with opportunities for social justice immersion in communities across the United States winter break, President’s Day weekend, spring break, and summer. 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 Jamaica, 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.
