Alternative Spring Break

Apply for Campus Philly’s 2011 Alternative Spring Break!

Campus Philly's Alternative Spring Break is a weeklong service immersion program held in March of each year. Participating students live and work together throughout the week. During the days, students will visit a local nonprofit to learn about a social issue affecting the Philadelphia region and how that nonprofit is working to tackle the problem. Students will then get a chance to work directly on a service project with the nonprofit.

At night, students are given the chance to explore some of the many great cultural offerings of Philadelphia. Past trips have included a private tour of Citizens Bank Park, Eastern State Penitentiary, the Philadelphia Zoo, ice skating, Adventure Aquarium and more. This year's Alternative Spring Break will be taking place from Sunday, March 6th to Friday, March 11th. All applications are due on February 11th.
