Alternative Spring Break


Alternative Spring Break

The Alternative Spring Break program is a great opportunity for students to volunteer during their spring break and to give back to the surrounding community. Students spend the week working in teams to complete services at various New Haven and West Haven locations. The program is a wonderful way for students to meet other people, develop their leadership and teambuilding skills, and to volunteer their time and talents while benefiting great causes.

This year, there was a total of 33 participants: 

  • 7 students volunteered with New Haven Reads
  • 3 students volunteered at West Haven Child Development Center
  • 10 students worked with Habitat for Humanity
  • 4 students helped at the Connecticut Food Bank
  • 4 students worked with the New Haven Home Recovery
  • 5 students volunteered at Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services (IRIS)

Applications for this program are available at the end of each fall semester through the Office of Community Service Office.
