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 Alternative Summer Break will open soon.
