What is a Mini-Break?

Mini-Breaks are community service-learning trips typically done on Saturdays or over weekends. Participants travel locally to engage in active service, learn about social issues, and have life-changing experiences! Each break is lead by an experienced student leader and overseen by a campus advisor.

What will I do on a Mini-Break?

Participants are engaged in direct service for five to seven hours. The type of service depends on the trip. SUU students have helped build and renovate homes, worked with underprivileged children, helped at animal shelters, delivered humanitarian supplies, taught gardening, and more! You'll also have the chance to meet other great students and have fun!

How much do Mini-Breaks cost?

The cost for Mini-Breaks is almost free! Trips usually range in price from $5-$30 and include all meals, transportation and lodging (if applicable). If you're interested in a Mini-Break but unable to pay, please contact the Center for financial assistance.
