What is Alternative Break?
Meet the 2015 Alternative Break Team!
The goal of the Alternative Break Program is to give students a chance to have a positive impact on another community through hands-on-service projects. You can help be a part of the solution!
Every year the LIVE Program takes a group of students on a different type of service-learning trip. Check out the side bar to look at our past trips!

Salut! My name is Lakeidra Chavis and I am currently a junior studying Psychology, with minors in French and Journalism. I am the Editor-in-Chief of the school newspaper, The Sun Star. I’m from a small southern town in Arkansas and I’ve lived in AK for three years. Between AR and AK, I’ve lived in more than 8 places and have attended more than 8 schools—from Texas to Germany. I’m excited to be a part of the AB team this year! Volunteering is fun, crazy and amazing! It’s nice to get perspective—that’s not something you can learn in a one hour class three days a week. In my spare time I like to snowboard, read, cook, write and watch movies
