Alternative Spring Break Trips

As a generation that is used to seeing war and natural disasters hit the TV screen every day, it is no wonder that the idea of going on more socially responsible spring breaks is a growing trend among college students.

Called the alternative spring break, it's when students decide to volunteer to give back to needy communities during their time off from school, instead of hitting the beaches of Cancun. Students can not only help others but also gain the experience of a lifetime.
