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.

Applications for ‘18-‘19 trips are currently closed. We expect to open applications for a spring weekend trip in early December.

Our alternative break program is committed to the 8 Components of a Quality Alternative Break:

  1. Strong Direct Service
  2. Full Engagement
  3. Diversity and Social Justice
  4. Orientation
  5. Education
  6. Training
  7. Reflection
  8. Reorientation
