Interfaith Alternative Spring Break

About the Program

Students who participate in the Interfaith Alternative Spring Break will have transformative opportunities to participate in service and interfaith engagement activities with individuals and organizations from a variety of worldviews in social actions toward a common good. Students will travel to Washington D.C. to engage with individuals and organizations doing interfaith work around social issues the group has identified as a shared values across their variety of worldviews. Participants will come to see themselves as interfaith leaders who will effect change for a more pluralistic society.

After returning to campus, the participants of the trip will be responsible for bringing their learning back to the Dartmouth community. They will plan an interfaith event or activity connecting their learning around the shared value to campus context. Participants will work with the MultiFaith Advisor to strategize, plan, and implement the interfaith engagement activity during the next term when the participants will be back on campus.
