MAB’s service experiences are an awesome opportunity to serve various communities in need alongside other Mizzou students. Each experience has a service focus ranging from Habitat for Humanity to Animals and Indigenous People to Health. Typically, MAB has weekend, five day, and week-long trip options with weekend trips serving throughout the state and week-long trips serving across the U.S. and abroad.
However, during these unprecedented times, many things have changed, including how MAB will Get Out and Give Back. Although the trip structure will look different, MAB’s mission hasn’t changed. MAB is still a service program designed to cultivate active citizenship through service experiences.

Bring it Home 2020 Service Opportunities
Due to Covid-19 travel concerns, Mizzou Alternative Breaks is focusing its efforts on serving the Columbia community and surrounding communities within 25 miles of Columbia. We recognize that Covid-19 has amplified needs across all communities, and we will continue to Serve, Don’t Help in whatever capacity we can. MAB participants can choose to be a part of a Weekend of Service or Spring Break of Service.
Weekend of Service
MAB’s weekend trips will take place during the weekends of March 12-14 and May 7-8 in Columbia. Each weekend trip will have a service focus and will serve with one or more local organizations within that focus. Weekend trips will serve around seven hours within 25 miles of Columbia during their Weekend of Service. Participant applications for the Stop-n-Serve Weekend of Service May 7-8 are now open!
Partnership trips allow a group of students, such as a student organization, sorority or fraternity chapter, or academic area, to plan a trip and select participants all from their own group! Participating in a partnership trip is a great way for groups to bond while getting out and giving back to Missouri communities. Spring weekend partnership trips will go out March 12-14 and registration is open now at the link below.
Spring Break of Service
Looking for a fun, safe way to spend your spring break? Stay in CoMo and participate in a Mizzou Alternative Breaks Spring Break of Service from March 26-30!
MAB’s spring break service experiences will take place the first five days of spring break and will serve during the day within 25 miles of Columbia. Each service experience has a service focus ranging from health to education to habitat for humanity to animals and more. Spending your spring break with MAB is a great way to meet other Mizzou students and safely serve and explore Mid-Missouri! Participant applications close January 31.
