Through your gift to an AB student or site, you are helping participants become more educated and experienced in all sides of a social issue. Giving through Alternative Breaks empowers students to make more informed decisions and take meaningful action that supports a greater good.
NYU Alternative Breaks fosters a community of active citizens by challenging participants to engage with social issues through a commitment to social justice education; strong, direct service; and reflection to create meaningful change in their respective communities.
Last year over 250 NYU students traveled across the world to spend their winter break, spring break, and weekends working with various host communities on a breadth of issues including literacy, poverty, homelessness, racism, immigration, disaster relief, and the environment. Withouth your support, none of this would be possible.
