Support CAVE’s Alternative Spring Break
Support CAVE’s Alternative Spring Break and transform students from passive observers to life-long advocates!
CAVE Alternative Spring Break trips transform students into advocates of social change, informing their personal values and life choices while impacting their own communities long after the trip has ended. Since CAVE’s first alternative spring break trip in 2006 in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, students have organized trips centered on housing inequity, environmental literacy, food insecurity, and health care policy and services.
French novelist Marcel Proust (1871-1922) said once, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
Every Dollar Counts
The 2018 CAVE Alternative Spring Break will take place March 19 – 23.
Even though the trips are low-budget, not all students can afford to participate. This fund will provide the opportunity for deserving students to explore intense social and cultural issues, and put theory to practice through community visits, direct service, group discussion, readings, and reflection activities.
- $20 will pay for one student’s daily meal allowance
- $50 will pay for one night’s lodging for one student
- $200 will pay for the transportation for one student on the five-day trip
A volunteer described their experience, “It helped me open my eyes and think about people other than myself, which at 20 was all I was doing. I often say I got my degree at Chico State and CAVE taught me how to use it.”
