Salt Lake Community College

Alternative Fall Break

What is an Alternative Break?


An alternative break program typically sends teams of college students to different communities to engage in community service and experiential learning during their school breaks. Students perform short-term projects for community agencies and learn about a specified issue area for the whole break. Being completely immersed in diverse environments enables participants to experience, reflect, and understand social issues in a meaningful way. The intensity of the experience increases the likelihood that participants will transfer the lessons learned on-site back to their own communities even after the alternative break ends.


Join us for Alternative Fall Break as we stay local and explore food resources in our Salt Lake Community! We will be volunteering with the International Rescue Committee, Utah Community Action, and SLCC Gardens.
