The Alternative Breaks program here at SMU has been making huge strides this year. We are entering the home stretch of filling our trips. This year we will have seven domestic spring break trips, one international spring break trip, and two winter break trips.
We are setting a new record for the amount of service trips offered and the number of participants in AB’s 22+ year history. We will be focusing on issues ranging from affordable housing to education to homelessness to HIV/AIDS outreach and beyond. This is shaping up to be an exciting year for Alternative Breaks!
Our final info session will be Tuesday November 16, from 7:30pm to 8:30pm in the Hughes-Trigg Theater. Be sure to stop by if you are interested in making a difference the spring or winter break. You can also pick up an application online (SMU.edu/AB) or grab one from the Leadership and Community Involvement office (3rd floor of Hughes-Trigg). Spots are filling up quickly, so don’t hesitate to turn in an application or you may miss out on a great opportunity!
