Alternative Spring Break

Our mission seeks to expose students to diverse cultures and traditions through service and activism, as students are immersed in unique environments. 

Our goal is to provide a service-learning opportunity for Northwest students willing to commit themselves to a worthy cause by positively impacting the lives of others. Concepts of social justice, economic disparity, and community outreach are explored through the depths of service, education, critical thinking, and leadership. 

During Northwest's Spring Break (March 8 - 13), Alternative Spring Break traveled to Panama City Beach to assist with shore restoration and reef-building in Choctawhatchee Bay. Our members also helped Anchorage Children's Home paint one of their transitional living homes. To prepare for the trip, our members volunteered at local community organizations such as Lettuce Dream, food banks, and animal shelters.
