Alternative Break Programs

Alternative breaks give you an opportunity to focus on service, leadership, education, and civic responsibility in our own community and in others.

Local Alternative Fall Break

Challenge yourself to dive deep into the challenges facing our community and to see your city in a new light. Service-Learning’s first Local Fall Break Challenge was October 14 and 15, 2019. Participants spent one night and two days learning about the city of Charlotte and working with local non-profit organizations.

Information on the 2020 local alternative fall break will be published in fall 2020. Email Lauren Estes at with any questions.
