Alternative Spring Break

Alternative Spring Break 2019

Michigan Tech is partnering with NetWork Volunteers and Long Way Home to send students to New Orleans, LA and Comalapa, Guatemala over Spring Break. For more information attend our interest meetings being held on January 27, 2019 and January 31, 2019 in Wadsworth G17/19W. 


Alternative Spring Break exists to promote service learning and community building to Michigan Tech students through participation in experiential learning opportunities via an alternative break. Through Alternative Breaks, students have the opportunity to develop into life-long active citizens in local, national and global communities through diverse, direct-service experiences dedicated to civic engagement.

If you, or your student organization, are planning an Alternative Spring Break trip please let us know how we can help!

In the future, we are looking for new and unique opportunities to combine the spring break experience with service learning.  If you have an idea for what our next spring break trip should entail, or you are interested in attending an alternative spring break trip, please let us know by emailing
