Alternative Spring Break

During Spring Break, students have an opportunity to travel to surrounding communities in the southeastern region where there is a community need and volunteer. This gives participants a chance to participate in community service while learning the needs of various communities other than their own.

Summer Service Weekends

Twice during the Summer Semester, UAB students travel to a nearby community for a weekend of service. Destinations for these trips vary from year to year. There is no cost to students for participation.

Civic Engagement Fairs

Local community agencies come to campus to inform students about their non-profit agencies and recruit volunteers.
