Alternative Spring Break

Make your Spring Break matter! Join us each year for half a week of giving back and working for justice.

For the last three years students have spent half of the Spring Break with the Miller Summer Youth Institute at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary to do housing justice work with Open Hand Ministries and volunteer with Garfield Community Farm. All students are welcome to participate no matter their faith background and full and partial scholarships are available each year.

Information about Alternate Spring Break will be available in Fall 2023. We appreciate your interest!
