UDaB - UD Alternative Breaks Program


The application for 2015-2016 UDaB Site Leader and Executive Board positions is now open; it closes on Monday, April 20th. Any questions about the application can be directed to udabreaks@gmail.com. Find the application here.

In spring 2015, UDaB sent over 250 participants on eleven alternative spring break trips.  

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.
