Alternative Break Local

UT students will have TWO opportunities to serve their Knoxville community in Spring 2017 through the ABLocal program!

  • February 17th- 19th (Friday- Sunday)- Women’s Issues
  • April 21st- 23rd (Friday- Sunday)- Environmental Issues

We will be diving into service in our own community to help serve those close to home. This trip will focus on community development and working alongside our Knoxville community partners to help students better understand the social issues around us. The same basic principles of the Alternative Break Program apply… just in a shorter time frame!

Selection for the trip will be based on a random lottery system of the applications submitted. A $25 participation fee will cover all meals, housing, and transportation during the experience. Feel free to contact lrhoden@vols.utk.edu with any questions.

Applications for the Women’s Issues trip are now closed. Applications for the Environmental Issues trip will open in March.
