UDaB - UD Alternative Breaks Program


2017 trip dates are: Saturday, March 25 - Saturday, April 1; Trips and information sessions to be announced by August 30, 2016.  UDaB applications open September 12 and close on October 7; Check with BHLP & RLAB for their application schedule.

In 2016, UDaB sent over 350 participants on sixteen alternative break trips; BHLP sent two trips, RLAB sent three trips.  Trips were held during winter session and spring break. 

The University of Delaware Alternative Break (UDaB) program immerses student-led teams in direct service and experiential learning with community organizations to increase knowledge of social justice issues and encourage life-long active citizenship.

Vision: UDaB's vision is an alternative break program, available to students of all backgrounds and incomes, that sends out a variety of issue-based service learning experiences during the course of university recess periods, including spring and winter breaks. UDaB strives to be accessible to all university students as both a facilitator of these break trips and as an advisor for other student groups that would like to plan, participate in, and reflect on service.

History: UDaB began in 2010 and piloted its first program during the 2011 Spring Break. In that first year, 92 student participants and 12 student leaders traveled to five communities to pursue service projects.

UDaB has been the recipient of support from the families and friends of participants, and through a generous grant from the UD Alumni Association. The program is grateful for all of the support from the university community and the contributions from donors.
