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 experiential learning during university 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.

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; and engage in team work/group dynamics.

Identifying your transferable skills and understanding their value to employers will increase your effectiveness in the job search.
