Alternative Breaks

The Alternative Spring Break program gives TWU students the opportunity to engage in service projects across the globe and impact the lives of those in need. Through partnerships with local organizations, TWU students immerse themselves with new cultures while doing hands-on volunteer work to improve local communities. These experiences challenge them to think critically and compassionately while taking meaningful actions to support a greater good. The skills, connections and growth the students make through the program are life changing and help further the mission of the University to truly be a Campus with a Heart. Trips are taken during TWU’s Spring Break period.

Past trips have been:

  • Disaster Relief & Community Engagement with Peninsula de Cantera Location: San Juan, Puerto Rico
  • Food Insecurity with Crossroads Community Services Location: Dallas, TX
  • Camp Summit, a barrier-free camp for the special needs population Location: Paradise, TX
  • Hurricane Relief Efforts with Project Cure Location: Houston, TX
