What is Alternative Break?
Alternative Break is a weeklong immersion experience dedicated to learning about complex social and cultural issues through direct service, experiential learning, group discussions, and reflections. ASB breaks the stereotypes traditionally associated with college spring/fall break trips.
Alternative Break at Penn State Greater Allegheny encourages students to become active members of a global society by promoting social awareness through direct service, experiential learning, and reflection.
Alternative Break at Penn State Greater Allegheny provides opportunities for students to be immersed into cultures and communities throughout the United States through direct service, experiential learning, and reflection.
