Beyond Bama: Alternative Breaks organizes trips for the UA student body during Fall, Winter, and Spring breaks. Alternative Break trips allow students to travel to communities in parts of the country and the world, and engage in service and experimental learning during university holiday breaks. These short-term service trips provide an all-inclusive experience for students while providing
a learning experience on issues such as literacy, poverty, culture, hunger, homelessness, and the environment. These trips are fundamentally life-changing for the students and those served.
All Beyond Bama trips are online application based. If you have any questions about our application process, feel free to stop by the Center for Service and Leadership within the Ferguson Center in Suite 1100.
Transferable Skills: By participating in a Beyond Bama: Alternative Breaks program, students gain exposure to outside communities; gain interview skills through our application process; gain coaching on individual strengths; & engage in team work/group dynamics.
