Florida State Alternative Breaks


Florida State Alternative Breaks facilitates accessible service immersion experiences for students to create sustainable change in partnership with local, national, and international community organizations and their constituents.


Active citizenship is informed by social issue education, community-centered service, and critical reflection. FSAB participants will practice active citizenship by grounding their engagement in intersectional and contextual knowledge of a community need, partnering with host community members to create meaningful change, and engaging in sustained social change practices after returning to their home communities.


Space on Alternative Breaks trips is limited, so students who wish to attend must complete an application. Applications are currently closed.

Become a student coordinator 

The Student Coordinator role offers the opportunity for students to select their social issue, location, and community partner, offering more autonomy in the planning and development process.
