Alternative Breaks

Alternative Breaks allow Boise State students to make the most of their time away from campus during academic breaks.

 

Students travel, meet new people, and feel the satisfaction that comes from working to improve communities and lives on a local, regional, and international scale. When they return to campus, they have renewed enthusiasm for community service and become catalysts for social change.

 

Hundreds of students participate in Alternative Breaks, however, there are just as many who would like to volunteer, but are unable because they lack the money to pay their way. The funding we raise through Bronco Giving will help more students to participate by providing need-based scholarships and reducing the overall cost of the experiences.

 

The following alternative breaks were offered to Boise State students last year:

  • Access to Opportunity in Los Angeles, CA

  • Animal Advocacy and Rehabilitation in Kanab, UT

  • Commitment to Community in Boise, ID

  • Environmental Sustainability in Zion National Park, UT

  • Fighting Hunger in Boise, ID

 

Leadership Development

The Student Leadership Development Fund is designed to provide scholarships for students to attend the LeaderShape Institute, a six-day experience that offers a unique opportunity to develop a healthy disregard for the impossible.

 

Participation in LeaderShape is free, but due to the six-day time commitment, many students cannot afford to take the time off work to attend. This need-based scholarship will enable more students to share in a transformative experience.

 

Here's what a past participant had to say about his experience:

 

“My time at LeaderShape allowed me to meet many great people and get in touch with the way I wish to bring about positive change in the world. I am proud to be a part of this community of change agents, supporting and challenging one another to live in a world of possibility! I am proud to say I am a LeaderShape graduate!”

 

Student Employability

 

 

The Student Employability Fund provides scholarships for students to participate in hands-on learning outside the classroom, such as internships and Work U. Unpaid experiences (approximately 65% of all placements) are highly valuable and often life-changing for students. Yet many students have to work to support themselves and can’t afford to take time off to participate in unpaid experiences even though they are relevant to their career goals.

 

This former Work U student explains how your contribution, big or small, can change the course of a student’s life: “I was running track, doing Work U to get experience but also needed to get paid because I was not on scholarship.  A scholarship would be so helpful to free up time to focus more on school and not have to worry about where the next meal is coming from.”

 

Experiential learning has had a profound impact on the personal and professional lives of Boise State students. Career Services is dedicated to providing access to all students and contributed $4,000 to the Student Employability Fund last year. Your generous donation will impact even more students who need this valuable experience.
