Alternative Break Trips
One of the most popular service opportunities at Austin Peay is our Alternative Break Trips! Every fall, winter, spring, and summer break we offer trips to students where they can spend their breaks volunteering and exploring new cities. Trips are affordable so that every student has the possibility to go - you'll never pay more than $100 for domestic trips, and they include all food, housing and transportation! So take a look at what trips we have coming up and apply today!
The mission of the Alternative Break Program is to engage students in meaningful and collaborative community service in an effort to increase awareness of social and environmental issues and strengthen the communities in which they serve as well as foster a strong sense of community among trip participants and to the university as a whole.
