This weekend experience is volunteering alongside a nonprofit organization that provides programs for food, health, housing, and jobs for communities suffering in areas of high concentrations of poverty. You will work hands on to help make an impact on the development of this community, while getting to work alongside and learn from community members.

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.
