Alternative Break (AB) program provides USC Upstate students with an
opportunity to participate in volunteer and educational trips to culturally
diverse and economically disadvantaged communities throughout the United
States. Alternative Break groups travel to locations all across the United
States. They provide service-learning opportunities working with important
issues such as the environment, education, immigration, poverty and other unmet
human needs. The AB program exposes students to communities and immersion
experiences that cannot be replicated on the USC Upstate campus.
We currently offer Alternative Fall Break (AFB) and Alternative Spring Break (ASB) trips. Trips are open to all USC Upstate students and are student-led! For more information about the AB program and how to get involved, contact the Alternative Break Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
