Since 2007, Interfaith Philadelphia has run an Alternative Break dialogue and service week for over 60 colleges, universities, high schools, and youth groups, engaging over 650 student leaders of diverse backgrounds. These groups have visited congregations of more than two dozen distinct faith communities while engaging in service to tackle important social issues such as homelessness, food insecurity, gun violence, racism, poverty, and school funding.
Interfaith Philadelphia has welcomed students from Alvernia University, Haverford College, North Carolina State University, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Johns Hopkins University, University of Virginia, Villanova University, and many more schools from across the country!
We hope that every student leaves with a tremendous appreciation for the importance of our work, a commitment to carry forward the skills, and knowledge learned during the week that will carry through for the rest of their lives.
A Unique Alternative Break Trip Experience...
