Alternative Spring Break 2019

Alternative Break Program 

Alternative Break Program (ABP) exposes students to complex social and cultural issues through service, experiential learning, group discussion, and personal reflection. These are great educational opportunities for students to gain a deeper insight of social issues and become well-informed citizens. The Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) Leadership Program along with the Reisher Scholarship will host its annual Alternative Break Program.

Alternative Break Trips
