Alternative spring break : a manual to assist in the planning and implementation of a service-learning trip
A template was developed to guide the planning, implementation and evaluation of a service-learning alternative spring break trip. Discussion was based upon a trip designed by the author and implemented in March 2006. Participants were undergraduate students at Ball State University. The project provided background information on service-learning and current alternative breaks at colleges and universities across the United States. A compilation of components necessary to plan a trip was included. Additionally, recommendations were prepared for future coordinators.
