Alt Breaks OrgSync portal

Alternative Break is a national program where colleges and universities organize drug and alcohol-free local and out of state trips for students that want to travel during their fall or spring breaks. Since 1999, the Thayne Center has organized over 30 AB trips. Participants have traveled to 12 states, including New York, Hawaii, Colorado, and Washington. Alternative Break at SLCC challenges students to learn about social issues, such as poverty and homelessness, and empowers them to personally make a difference through volunteering. For more information about our current trips, please visit the Alternative Breaks OrgSync page.
