An alternative break (sometimes called an "alternative service experience" or ASE) is: "a trip where a group of college students engage in direct service, typically for a week. Each trip has a focus on a particular social issue.... Students educate themselves and each other, then do hands-on work with relevant organizations." (Source: http://alternativebreaks.org/about/)
