Participants in the Alternative Spring Break program are selected based on their demonstrated commitment to service in the community and on campus. Students must attend an information session before they can apply for the program. Applications must be submitted online at https://thelink.rit.edu/organization/RLI-CSC/availableforms. Once you have submitted your application and we have had an opportunity to review all applications, our office will contact you with our decision.
Participants are required to attend the pre-break informational sessions, pre-travel planning meetings, and a post-break activity. Participants are also required to help fundraise for the trip as part of service learning. RIT course credit may be available. During the trip, each member is expected to fully participate in the daily projects, workshops, and nightly journal writing.
There is a fee to help defray travel expenses which varies annually. Past expenses have ranged from $300-$600 dollars. Financial Assistance may be available for students with need; contact Phyllis Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about financial assistance. If for some reason the participant decides to withdraw from the program before the break, they will be required to reimburse the program.
