An alternative break is your opportunity to engage in community service and experiential learning during spring break. Students, faculty & staff perform short term projects for community agencies and learn about important issues such as literacy, poverty, racism, hunger, homelessness and the environment. In spring 2010, participants from CCBC worked with agencies providing services to refugees that recently arrived to the United States.
The objectives of an alternative break program are to involve participants in community-based service projects and to give students opportunities to learn about the problems faced by members of communities with whom they otherwise may have had little or no direct contact. Over the past two-years, CCBC students traveled to Tortuguero, Costa Rica to work with endangered green turtles as well as working on additional ecotourism projects that directly impact the community and Luquillo, Puerto Rico where students worked with multiple community agencies to impact the quality of life for the local community.
