During Sac State Alternative Break, participants provide much needed services to diverse communities, while helping students build skills and develop great friendships.

Alternative Break is a flexible commitment. You can choose to work from one day to all week, depending on your availability. We hope you consider working with us the whole week.

All majors and experience levels welcome.
