Alternative Breaks

Fresno State's Alternative Breaks program provides students with multi-day service opportunities where they work with peers during one of the traditional school breaks.

We are now recruiting participants for this year's projects. There are two projects students can choose from. The first team will be working with Scout Island and River Tree on projects such as pollinator habitat maintenance and invasive species removal along the river banks. The second team will partner with Stone Soup to lead a STEAM camp and host a Fresno State Outreach Day for community children and families.
