On Spring Break, students spring into action

This week, 186 mem­bers of the North­eastern com­mu­nity will par­tic­i­pate in ser­vice projects in 15 com­mu­ni­ties across the U.S. and four other coun­tries for Alter­na­tive Spring Break—a week­long immer­sive living and vol­un­teering experience.

Spring break, with a humanitarian twist

During Northeastern’s Alter­na­tive Spring Break next week, 180 stu­dents, fac­ulty, and staff will work on more than a dozen immer­sive ser­vice projects world­wide, ranging from pro­tecting nat­ural resources in the Ever­glades to tutoring orphaned chil­dren in the Dominican Republic.
