ALTERNATIVE SPRING BREAK FAQ
ALTERNATIVE SPRING BREAK POLICIES
Why Do an Alternative Spring Break with UM Hillel?
Service is a fundamental value in Judaism. Through our extensive Alternative Break program, you have the opportunity to explore this principle by immersing yourself in a domestic or global community to learn about and actively combat social justice issues. While on an Alternative Break, you will work in a team and learn about a particular issue, engage in short-term service projects, interact with the local community, hear from experts, and enjoy fun team activities. Alternative Breaks will challenge you to think critically about the relationship between social justice and Judaism, your personal obligation to others and your ability to make change in the world.
