Academic Career Experience & Service Learning

Alternative Breaks

Break away! What are your plans between winter and spring semesters? Don't have any? How about helping others and having fun while doing it! Travel domestically to communities in need to engage in community service.

Delta College offers a student committee planned trip for students looking to engage in service and experiential learning. You will have the opportunity to perform short-term projects for community agencies and learn about issues such as poverty, hunger, homelessness and the environment. Don't miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime!

Previous Trips

In 2011, Alternative Spring Break traveled to Newland, North Carolina. A group of eight Delta students donated their time to help with the local Habitat for Humanity. They teamed up with Vanderbilt University students, and working Tuesday through Friday from 8am to 3:30pm, helped build a home. Because of this service, one lucky Newland family was able to live in a house again.
