2018 Alternative Breaks

This campaign ended on June 01, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Alvernia University by clicking here!

“My Alternative Break experience was a life changing one. We got to experience the hardships that these people face on a daily basis. We got to truly feel and understand the compassion and happiness these people feel when they have little to nothing. We got to witness the true testament of their faith and how dedicated they are to it. We were able to share our knowledge with the children but more importantly we were able to learn true happiness and love from these children.” – Alternative Break Participant `18

Today we ask you to make a donation to Alvernia’s Alternative Break program! Why? Simply because the Alternative Break program gives students the real life opportunity to live out Alvernia’s motto - To learn To love To serve. This year, over 80 students are spending a full week serving 7 different communities in the United States, Cuba and the Dominican Republic.

This wonderful program is fully funded by donations alone – student tuition dollars and fees do not benefit this program. As a result, we actively seek the support of people like you to help us make this possible!
