Alternative Break Participant

Civic Leadership Competencies: Values, Beliefs, and Assumptions, Reflection, Diversity of Communities and Cultures

Alternative Break combines the Houston-based focus of the Center for Civic Leadership's Urban Immersion program with the social-issue focus of the Alternative Spring Break program.  Over the course of Rice's fall and spring recess periods, site leaders and participants will engage in education, critical service, and reflection to gain a deeper understanding of a social issue and its impact on Houstonians.  

The Fall 2018 Alternative Break will focus on issues of water justice within the Houston community. Whether we are considering access, water quality, environmental and industrial factors, or issues related to natural disasters, Houstonians do not enjoy equal rights and access when it comes to water. This trip will explore not only the issue, but it's impact on individuals and communities, as well as steps being taken to address the issue. 

Date Held:  Rice University Fall and Spring Recess 

Fall 2018 Alternative Break - 12pm Saturday October 6th through 12pm Tuesday October 9th 

Funding: The CCL covers all costs. There is no cost to participate in this program.
