Did you see the article highlighting our #AlternativeBreak service trips in the new Alumni Magazine? Our time in Florida and Texas this year was truly remarkable. Each student left a beautiful mark behind on the communities and took one back with them on each of their hearts ♥️ . . .

Last week, we were on our Alternative Break to Albany, Georgia! The group had an amazing experience working with the Albany Area Fuller Center for Housing. We were able to work on a variety of service project which included: meal packing, dog adoption, playground demolition and house building! 🛠 #AlternativeBreak2018 #AlternativeBreak #AnswerTheCall #10YearsOfService #MissionTrip #Mission #GiveBack #FBF #FlashbackFriday #Albany #Georgia #COF #LifeInsurance #FraternalBenefit #Mission #Catholic #FullerCenter

“Challenge is pushing status quo.” That quote is just one of many that inspired me throughout my experience at the ABC school in Atlanta focused on placemaking and public art. The knowledge I have gained and those that I have met will motivate me to encourage those that are silenced to speak up and know your worth! @activecitizenhq #breakaway #publicart #hotlanta #alternativebreak

Saturday morning breakfast ❤️🥞🍞🥐
The people living in disaster affected communities across Puerto Rico may not have the tools, equipment or skills to rebuild their homes, but they are determined to help us help them in whatever way they can. The love and grace in which they've welcomed our volunteer teams into their homes has us all filled with awe! Over the past few weeks several of our homeowners have prepared lunch for the teams working on their homes. As volunteers sit down together with the family, sharing experiences, stories, laughter and tears, it is clear to see that this is a journey shared. The people of Puerto Rico inspire us with their kindness, and generosity of spirit. We are more determined than ever to provide safer housing to more and more families here. #NECHAMAdisasterresponse #puertorico #hurricanemaria #pr #hurricane #puertoricostrong #volunteering #igdaily #volunteers #volunteeringopportunities #journey #payitforward #tikkunolam #travel #travelgram #alternativebreak #summerideas #summer #disasterresponse #disasterrelief #disastermanagement #volunteer #dinner #cooking #guaynabo #eatingtogether #grateful 💙 📸 @sabine7777
As the rain pours in Guaynabo, our spirits cannot be dampened. Working together and living together means our volunteers form strong bonds that can be invaluable to their experience here. Volunteer Rich spent 5 days volunteering with our teams. As he headed back to Chicago he said 'Nothing but fond memories of the work, and more importantly the comradery of the NECHAMA Staff and other volunteers'. We are welcoming volunteers through August, and anticipate extending.

Day one of the Humanics Alternative Break. Our group had the pleasure of visiting the Center for Human Rights & the Anne Frank memorial #AlternativeBreak @wassmuthcenter
Continuation: To me, social justice is similar to starting a campfire. It starts with learning how to build one, such as figuring out what kind of wood burns best and how the sticks should be arranged. Tackling social justice issues starts with learning about the issue, which in this case is environmental justice. Once the sticks have been arranged, a spark is needed for them to ignite. Volunteering with the Catalina Island Conservancy is our spark. To keep the fire going, more wood has to be added to the flames. There are many ways to gain environmental justice, such as volunteering with various organizations, reducing the use of pollutants, and educating others. On this Alternative Break, I learned how to build my first campfire. I have learned so much about how I can do my part for environmental justice and I will continue to bring the knowledge I have obtained into the future and into other people's lives to create a better environment. @unlvolunteers #alternativebreak #unlvaltbreaks18 #unlv #unlvolunteers
WHAT A WEEK, Y'ALL. • I am feeling so blessed to have had the opportunity to spend the last week with this amazing group of people serving down in Tennessee. • To the students...YOU ARE AWESOME. I could literally go on forever about how incredible y'all are! I am so happy that I got to meet each and every one of you. There was a lot of sweat, a lot of laughs, some tears, but most importantly we created memories that will last a lifetime! • To Ed, Arlene, Caelen, and Blue....thank you for your hospitality. Thank you for everything you're doing for your community. Thank you for opening your home to us and allowing us to become part of the OUAT legacy. • To my favorite co-advisor...thanks for always encouraging me and convincing DH that I needed to go on this trip. • I LOVE YOU ALL. ❤ #minivangang #blackbear #rogerthatoverandout #nana #gmos #rowdybuck #TylerismyfavoriteRanger #thankfulforflushingtoilets #Tennessee #appalachia #knoxville #gotserviceAU #alternativebreak #OnceUponATime #smokeymountains

"They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time" Doris Day. Today ends the @gasouthernbreakers #Alternativebreak that I have been a resident scholar on this week working with Atlanta Harm Reduction Collation. I have had the opportunity to be with an amazing group of interdisciplinary students who have given a week of their summer to help others. I have seen them grow so much over the past 5 days and all of our eyes have been open to an issue we before did not completely understand. This week has challenged me in ways I cannot yet express and had pushed me far beyond my comfort zone yet I would not change it in anyway. Scroll through the pics to get a little glimpse into our week but what has been truly learned on through this experience can not be shown in a picture. #realservicehasnoboundaries #ibreakforsocialjustice #addiction #reduceharm #Georgia southern
you have so much but are always hungry for more stop looking up at everything you don’t have and look around at everything you do 🦋 where the satisfaction lives ~ @rupikaur_ #ivhqnepal #alternativebreak

After the cafes of Paris with their exquisite wines and creamy fromages, crepes and steak tartare-- screaming Adore me!-- Madrid was these store-bought hunks of unyielding cheese and brick-hard baguettes, consumed in leafless Buen Retiro Park.ll Madrid, dressed as it was, tasting as it did, prideful as hell, didn't care what you thought about it on your junior-year backpacking trip. That was your problem. Michael Paterniti, The Telling Room: A Tale of Love, Betrayal, Revenge, and the World's Greatest Piece of Cheese #ivhq #ivhqspain #alternativebreak #madrid #spain #volunteering
There's such a big difference between being dead and alive, I told myself, the greatest gift that anyone can give anyone else is life. And the greatest sin a person can do to another is to take away that life. Next to that, all the rules and religions in the world are secondary; mere words and beliefs that people choose to believe and kill and hate by. My life won't be lived that way, and neither, I hope, will my children's.

Henri Landwirth, founder of Give Kids The World, passed away at age 91. I never had the opportunity to personally meet Henri, but he's had a profound impact on my life. A Holocaust survivor, Henri emigrated to the US, and ultimately settled in Florida. After many years as a hotelier, his true calling was creating a resort where children with life-threatening illnesses could stay with their families during a cost-free vacation. Over the past 10 years, I've volunteered at the Village with my family as well as hundreds of college students. I truly believe that Give Kids The World is the happiest place on earth. Henri Landwirth lost his own childhood due to hate, but he has given over 160,000 children their childhood back with hope and love. Henri Landwirth will always be an inspiration to me. My sincerest sympathies and condolences to Henri Landwirth's family and friends. His spirit will certainly live on forever at Give Kids The World • • • • • • • @GKTWVillage #GKTWVillage #GKTWU #AlternativeBreak #SpringBreak #FamilyTravel #Travel #travelwithkids #TravelBlogger @ExperienceKissimmee #MyKissimmee #Kissimmee @VisitFlorida #VisitFlorida #LoveFL #Florida
The important thing is moral choice. Evil has to exist along with good, in order that moral choice may operate. Life is sustained by the grinding opposition of moral entities. -Anthony Burgess #ivhq #ivhqspain #alternativebreak #madrid #spain #volunteering #servethecity

Years ago, I was lucky enough to lead my church’s youth group in an alternative break. We got to help victims in Kansas whos homes were torn apart by tornadoes. I am proud to have had the opportunity and would absolutely do it again. #springbreak #alternativebreak #lessmoneyspentthanmexico
