Alternative Break

Buffalo State students have an opportunity to impact communities near and far with fellow classmates. Alternative Break is a trip experience in which students target a particular social issue and work together towards a solution. It challenges students to understand that a problem for someone is a problem for all of us. Students stand benefit from this experience as they become more invested in a better future for all as they become a part of social change. Students also establish and fortify bonds with other students as well. There is a cost, but scholarships are available to those who qualify, as well as fundraising to off-set payments. However, the cost is minimal when compared to wealth of experience a student has to gain from this opportunity.
