Alternative Spring Break

A week-long immersion program

Spend a week with your peers making a difference in places like Utah, California or Mexico. Each year's destination is different, but your mission remains the same – helping others in meaningful ways.

Participating in Linfield's Alternative Spring Break program allows you to:

  • Take steps toward becoming an active and empowered citizen
  • Learn about the importance of nonprofits, civic engagement, service-learning and philanthropy
  • Learn about a social issue, from root causes to related current events
  • Grow your sense of community
  • Explore your own identity as an agent of social change
  • Develop multicultural awareness
  • Develop and strengthen skills to help your future, including interpersonal, communication, working in groups and problem-solving
  • Explore your own values and perceptions of the world, and engage in meaningful dialogue with peers
