What are Alternative Weekend Break Trips?
Ever feel like your weekends just repeat? Break the monotony!
An Alternative Weekend Break immerses students in a purposeful service experience designed to connect students and community members while enhancing personal growth, mutual awareness and life-long learning. Alternative Weekend Breaks generally begin on Friday late afternoon/early evening and last until Sunday afternoon. A team of approximately 10 students emerge themselves in local or nearby communities within 200 miles to do service projects. Trips are co-sponsored by Community Service-Learning (CS-L) and another JMU department.
All Weekend Break Trips cost $25 per participant, which covers transportation, food and housing.
How Do I Sign Up?
Participants can sign up for the available Weekend Break trips at the Community Service-Learning Office in Wilson 204.
