Alternative Break

 

An Alternative Break is a trip where a group of 9 college students engage in volunteer service over a University break period. Each trip has a focus on a particular social issue, such as (but not limited to) education, privilege, health education and sustainability. Students learn about the social issues and then perform service 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.

Hands on Oshkosh

At the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, volunteerism broadly encompasses “bringing campus to life.” One way of doing so is through the semi-annual Hands on Oshkosh program, where students, faculty and staff come together to go out into the Oshkosh community, to volunteer and make a difference.

 

Past semesters have included projects such as: organizing classrooms to enhance the experience for the students, brightening the paint of an agency’s walls for a more welcoming area, taking on an agency’s yard work so their employees can continue to focus on their internal success, and much more! So grab your friends, get your “helping hands” ready, and join us for a day of VOLUNTEER FUN!
