Alternative Spring Break
UWG's Alternative Spring Break program will immerse students into populations in need for one week with the goal of creating positive social change. Participating in an alternative spring break program will be an experience you are unlikely to forget. All trips will include transportation, housing, and group meals. These trips are extremely affordable as several fundraising programs will be available for participants.

2015: We volunteered with Give Kids the World in Orlando, Florida. Give Kids the World is a nonprofit storybook resort that offers cost-free vacations for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. For these children, a typical week is filled with doctor's visits, treatments, pain, and medication, but at Give Kids the World, they are treated to a magical, memorable vacation where they can relax, have fun, and be a "normal kid. Volunteers play a crucial role in making Give Kids the World a place that inspires hope in children.
2014: We volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Mobile, Alabama and Dauphin Way Church. We worked with Georgia Tech and Brockport College from New York. Together we built three houses for three amazing families in need. See our trip pictures on Facebook.
