Over fall and spring breaks and even over intersession, Princeton University students can immerse themselves in salient issues related to current events and civil society.
The International Service Trip is an opportunity for students to explore a focused topic through a service-related project in a community outside the United States. The leaders and participants of the accepted trip will be expected to work closely with Pace Center staff and other campus partners starting from the selection of their trip to the time the trip leaves on several different levels of preparation and training. Because the trip is international, student-led, and student-driven, more planning and preparation will be required than a domestic alternative break trip.
Breakout Princeton is a student-driven civic action break trip program that encourages engagement with domestic social issues through immersion in communities. The complete Breakout experience consists of a series of pre-trip meetings, an unforgettable week, and related wrap-up sessions. Pre-trip meetings provide students from all backgrounds a common base of knowledge, while post-trip meetings encourage participants to share what they’ve learned with the wider campus community.
