The Students Activities Center at Iowa State University is sponsoring five spring service trips this year.

The objective of the Alternative Breaks program is to involve college students in service projects and to give students opportunities to learn about the problems faced by community members. The other Spring Alternative Break trips will be working across the U.S. with nonprofits serving children, Native Americans, home insecurity, and the environment.
