Alternative Break Trips
Travel. Volunteer. Learn. Enjoy!

Participate with other Jewish Terps on a Maryland Hillel Alternative Break trip! You’ll get to travel, volunteer with and immerse yourself in the community, learn about relevant social issues, and have fun! The priority deadline to apply for our winter trip to Guatemala is November 20 at 11:59 PM.

We’re traveling to Guatemala for the fifth year in a row to partner with Long Way Home, a non-profit that uses sustainable design and materials to construct self-sufficient schools that promote education, employment, and environmental stewardship. The group will help with construction projects, interact with the Comalapa community, and learn about environmental sustainability!

  • Dates: January 13-22, 2020 (Dates might shift by a day or two.)
  • Cost: Approx. $850 + Flight
