Alternative Breaks

Alternative Fall Break began in Fall 2012 as a way to expose students to Des Moines and learn how they can be a part of serving the community and getting involved outside of campus. AFB provides opportunities for students to volunteer at different locations and learn about the issues facing many individuals right in their backyard. The goal of AFB is to provide a tangible place for students to learn and get involved in making a difference here in Des Moines.

Alternative Spring Break gives students a chance to spend their spring break helping others. Similar to fall break, this program is a hands on learning experience focused on community service projects.
