Hurricane Harvey - Alternative Spring Break

Houston, TX | February – April 2018

Rather than the traditional Spring Break, students can help provide hope and comfort to storm-affected families after the historic floods caused by Hurricane Harvey. Alternative spring break trips allow students to serve the Houston area in a meaningful way. They allow students to travel, meet new people, and feel the satisfaction that comes from working to improve communities — and lives.

Students will work with NECHAMA staff providing home-rebuilding services to storm-affected families and communities.
