Alternative Break Connections

Alternative Break Connections (ABC) leads community service-learning trips during the University’s winter and spring breaks. ABC participants travel in teams to different cities, engage in active service, and have the opportunity to gain new perspectives on society while meeting community needs, and learning about and building upon community assets. We have traveled all over the country from Texas to South Dakota to Chicago to Miami.

pricing & fundraising

Trip Cost

Trips typically cost between $200 and $600.


Members can choose to fundraise some, none, or all of their trip cost. This year, we will be fundraising through Black & Gold Catering (TU Concessions),GiveCorps and a variety of local businesses. If you have questions specifically related to fundraising, please contact each trip leader


Throughout the semester, there will be mandatory meetings leading up to winter and spring break trips. At these meetings, students will be given travel updates, lodging, and other information important to having a productive trip. This will also be a time for students to organize fundraising events for each trip. We will try our best to organize meetings that are convenient for everyone, but it is your job to make the meetings a priority.
