Alternative Break

Sponsored by the Community Service Office, the Alternative Break program consists of domestic and international service-based trips during Keene State College’s winter, spring and summer breaks, as well as on select weekends throughout the academic year. Participants travel in teams, take part in service projects that address unmet community needs, gain awareness of critical social issues, enhance their individual growth, and prepare for lives of active citizenship. All trips are drug and alcohol free.

Alternative Break applications are currently closed. We’ll be announcing plans for our spring semester weekend trip soon—watch for announcements across campus and online.
