Alternative Breaks are week-long, 2-credit immersive programs through the Center for Social Concern that focus on a particular social justice issue in the context of Baltimore. Applications accepted on a rolling basis until spots are filled.
Alternative Breaks combines classroom instruction, direct service with community organizations, and various educational sessions (e.g. guest speaker discussions, documentary screenings, or other meaningful experiences). We offer three two-credit Alternative Break Intersession trips that focus on a particular social justice issue in the context of Baltimore: HIV and AIDS, Immigrant and Refugee Rights, and Urban Education.
During each trip, participants will go on site visits with local community partners, tour Baltimore, and end every day with interactive group reflection sessions. In the evenings, social activities are offered so that participants from the three concurrent programs can meet each other, share experiences, and have fun.
