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.

To be notified when our next trip opens for applications,  sign up for our service opportunities newsletter.
