Alternative Breaks

Want to meet new people? Get away for a while? Travel to new places?  Make a difference?

Join other Montgomery College students on a week or weekend packed with community service, meaningful reflections, and fun activities. 

Alternative Breaks are week and weekend-long service trips that help students learn about social issues through direct service, issue education, and reflection. Alternative Breaks help students explore how they can make a difference in their local and broader communities in the issues that matter to you...and affect us all. Applications for our next trip will be available in the fall semester.


Alternative Breaks are sponsored by different MC campuses but are always open to all students, regardless of the campus you attend.

To learn more about upcoming Alternative Break trips, become a fan of the Montgomery College Germantown Student Life Facebook page or contact the Service Learning Coordinator, SA building, room 186 on the Germantown campus, 240-567-7840.
