Alternative Break Program opportunities return for Clemson students


For the first time in more than a year, the Center for Student Leadership and Engagement is accepting applications for the Alternative Break Program. Trips have been planned to Charleston, South Carolina and Asheville, North Carolina over the Clemson University Fall Break. Trips are scheduled for Oct. 8-12.

Food for Thought: Creating Sustainable Access to Food – Charleston, S.C.
Participants will travel to Charleston to work with Sweet Grass Gardens, an organization that serves as a center for self-sustainable farming, healthy eating and hunger awareness.

Green at Heart: Enhancing Community through Conversation Efforts – Asheville, N.C.
Participants will travel to Asheville to work with GreenWorks, completing community-based, environmental conservation service projects to help “take care of the places we love to live.”

Both trips are $150, which covers the cost of meals, transportation and lodging for the experience. Interested students should apply here; applications close at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 29. Alternative breaks are service experiences that take place during academic breaks and provide students travel to a new community, exposure to social issues and work with local partners.
