Breakers will participate in a weekend service experience working at a national lakeshore that aims to preserve natural resources in the area along with their lighthouses, barns, farm houses, outbuildings, shops, and more. You will have the chance to perform a variety of tasks in the realm of dune ecology, natural resources, and beach environment. Activities may include maintaining trails, monitoring endangered species, helping at the campground, beach cleanup, and more! Help ensure that these public areas are available for all to experience and enjoy.

Alternative Spartan Breaks provides accessible, quality service opportunities, education about social issues, and exposure to diverse cultures and communities to promote the active citizenship of Michigan State University students.

Since 1991, Alternative Spartan Breaks has provided Spartans with quality service experiences around the country and the world. Modeled after the Citizenship Schools in the 1960's, Spartans are educated on a wide range of social issues as well as our 8 components before attending their experience. Through education and service it is our hope that our Breakers continue to give back to their communities and become community collaborators.
