Alternative Spring Break

Campus Ministry offers a variety of sites for undergraduate students to make a difference and have fun on an Alternative Spring Break. The year-long program provides the opportunity to engage in complex social and cultural issues through direct service, group discussion, experiential learning and individual reflection. While on an Alternative Spring Break, students share their perspectives regarding society, have the chance to make an impact and engage in new experiences. In the Holy Cross tradition of service, our hope is that students are transformed by the experience, becoming agents of change in the world.
