Welcome to UW-Oshkosh’s 2011 Alternate Spring Break website. This March we are sending 3 trips to different destinations to explore a variety of social issues, 2 of which are brand new trips for our departments. One trip will go to Washington DC to help address the issues of Hunger and Homelessness in our nation’s capital. The second trip will go to Tennessee and Alabama to focus on Social Limitations and Situational Inequity. The third trip is an international trip to the country of Guatemala where the group will focus on third world economic recovery. The groups hope to bring what they learn on their break trips back to the Oshkosh community to help address the same need here in our community.

Each trip has a page dedicated to it where students on the trips will be posting stories about their experiences. Please feel free to leave comments and messages for them while they are on their trips. When possible those comments will be shared with the group. Comments from home can really pick up the moral of a group, especially while struggling through some of the issues these students will be facing.
