Alternative Spring Break sends SJSU student teams on domestic
and international service trips during spring break. Students
work side by side with local residents on grassroots projects
to address critical, unmet needs. The intensive cultural
immersion and hands-on service exposes students to the
realities of community development and promotes fuller
comprehension of their place in the global community.
The San Jose State University Alternative
Spring Break Program is a unique partnership between Associated
Students' Cesar E. Chavez Community Action Center and San
Jose State University’s Center for Service Learning,
MOSAIC Cross-Cultural Center, and Student Health Center.
