Alternative Spring Break

Lot's of college students associate Spring Break with fun, vacations and perhaps a bit of hedonism.  That has been changing at colleges across the country, where Alternative Spring Break programs have encouraged service.  One of the great aspects of Yale Service Corps trips has been been the participation of current Yale students.  By tapping into the spirit of current Yalies, alumni get a great sense of what current students care about . . .  and we get a chance to share Yale's history of service with younger generations.
