What is Mizzou Alternative Breaks?

Mizzou Alternative Breaks (MAB) is a student-led program on the campus of the University of Missouri that sends students across the United States and abroad to serve communities in need. Trips go out over Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring, Summer, and weekend breaks. The program is completely student-led, meaning all participants who go on trips, site leaders who plan trips, and executive board members who oversee the management of trips are Mizzou undergrad or graduate students.
