Trip Focuses

Each of our trips fall within one of 15 focuses based on the community issue that we hope to address through our service. Although each trip has a primary focus, we always strive for intersectionality, meaning that our trips encompass multiple issues outside of their primary one. We understand that community issues do not exist within a vacuum. Understanding the ways in which multiple factors influence the circumstances of a community is an integral component of providing effective service.

What is Mizzou Alternative Breaks?

Founded in 1991, Mizzou Alternative Breaks (MAB) sends groups of up to twelve students on trips around the country over weekend, spring, summer, and winter breaks to volunteer at various places in need.
