An alternative break is a trip where a group of college students (usually 10-12 per trip) engage in volunteer service, typically for a week. Alternative break trips originated with college students in the early 1980s as a counter to "traditional" spring break trips. Each trip has a focus on a particular social issue, such as (but not limited to) poverty, education reform, refugee resettlement, and the environment. Students learn about the social issues and then perform week-long projects with local non-profit organizations. Alternative breaks challenge students to critically think and react to problems faced by members of the communities in which they are involved. UW Oshkosh is proud to host four Alternative Spring Break trip options; New York City, Washington DC, Honduras, and Guatemala. Student can apply to be part of this program!
Once a semester UW Oshkosh hosts "Hands on Oshkosh" a program where students, faculty and staff come together to go out into the community to volunteer and make a difference.
Registration sign-up forms are available online starting the end of the semester. The event will be taking place October 11 at 8:30 am and will be completed by 1:00 pm., with registration beginning at 8:30 am. There will be limited space for volunteers, and volunteers will be placed as they register. Our goal is to place as many volunteers with agencies as we can, but there will be limited space. Any questions can be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
