Alternative Spring Break

Since 2006, students from Augsburg University have dedicated their spring breaks to serving others in communities all over the country. Each year, a group led by a team of Augsburg students and staff partner with a local organization to serve the community. 

This year, the group will be traveling to New Orleans, Louisiana to partner with Rebuilding Together New Orleans. Founded in 1988, their goal is to improve the quality of life of low-income homeowners, particularly those who are elderly, disabled, veterans, or single head of households with minor children. In addition to our work with RTNO, we will have time to explore the city of New Orleans.
