ABI Sites

The Alternative Break Immersion program offers students the opportunity to participate in cultural immersion trips centered around service and learning. Each trip has a different focus that encompasses the social injustices of that region. The trips are offered at different times of the school year at various domestic and abroad locations, and the cost is dependent upon the location. The costs cover transportation, lodging meals, and a donation to the host organization.
