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 Civic Action Trips are week-long opportunities to learn about and take action on complex public issues through community immersion, direct service, group discussions, and reflection activities. 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.
