Alternative Breaks at Armstrong
What is an Alternative Break exactly?
An Alternative Break (AB) is a week-long or weekend immersive service experience. Teams of students (10-12) travel away from campus during breaks from school with the goal of engaging within a new community through education, service, and reflection. A program like this is easier to see than to read about, so check out this student-made video from our Alternative May Break to Flint, MI.
If you would like to talk more with a fellow student about Alternative Breaks and what this experience is like, feel free to reach out to any of our Alternative Break Board members!
Am I only allowed to participate on the “Armstrong Alternative Break?”
Great question, and absolutely not! While we do encourage Armstrong Campus students to apply for this Alternative Break, you are welcome to participate on any of the weekend or week-long breaks provided on the Statesboro campus as well. You can find more information about these breaks, located here.
We encourage this specific break for Armstrong students because all pre-break meetings, program events, and post-break meetings will be specifically offered at the Armstrong campus. The majority of students participating in this Alternative Break will be from the Armstrong campus as well, providing you the chance to get to know and work with students you will see around campus after the break!
