Alternative Breaks is a student-led program of the Einhorn Center for Community Engagement. We are motivated students who share a commitment to social justice, personal growth, and community engagement. Through educational opportunities, root cause analyses, reflection, and reciprocal engagement with community agencies, we demonstrate our commitment to addressing social justice issues using a racial lens. By examining racial disparities across all systems, we work to shift the societal narratives perpetuated by implicit biases, stereotypes, and institutional discrimination. Informed by the knowledge and expertise of our partner agencies, we seek to amplify their voices by raising awareness of systemic patterns disproportionately affecting disadvantaged communities.
