Alternative Break Trips

Unfortunately due to the Pandemic, all alternative break trips have been canceled for the 2020/2021 academic year but reach out if you are interested in learning more about this amazing experience and other opportunities to get involved!

In 2019-2020, we sent approximately 30 students on three different alternative break trips. For a week in January and a week in March students will work together to help others by serving a warm meal to individuals in need or helping to build a home for a deserving family.  Below is a little bit more information about each site:

A. Habitat for Humanity, Affordable Housing Location: Exmore, VA January 5- January 13

B.St Francis Inn, Focus on Hunger and Homelessness Location: Philadelphia, PA Spring Break

C.  Habitat for Humanity, Affordable Housing Location: Valdosta, GA Spring Break

As a student who would be representing St. Lawrence University in the community and traveling to do community service, I agree to abide by all St. Lawrence University policies and to represent the university in a positive manner. I also, authorize SLU Volunteer Services staff to verify that I am in good academic and social standard here at St. Lawrence University.- All students will be asked to sign an agreement that states this.
