Middlebury Alternative Break Program (MAlt)

MAlt is Middlebury’s alternative break program. Each year, students design and plan six trips during February Break (national and international destinations) and one Vermont-based trip during Fall and Spring Breaks. The goal of the trips is to engage Middlebury students with communities across the nation and the globe in order to share an experience, provide service where service is needed, and learn about the systems that shape community realities around the world.
Past destinations have included Boston, New York City, El Paso, San Francisco, Miami, Cherokee Nation, New Orleans, Washington D.C., Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic.
The program has a needs-blind acceptance policy and does fund-raising throughout the year to make sure that anyone who needs financial assistance can participate.
