Frequently Asked Questions
MAlt is Middlebury’s alternative break program. We provide affordable, service-oriented alternatives to traditional February break activities. We offer opportunities for students to help others and to expand their own experiences and perspectives by serving on local, domestic, and international trips. The trips are drug- and alcohol-free and provide a great chance to engage in an immersive intercultural service experience with peers. In 2020-2021 projects will take place virtually over J-Term and spring semester due to covid.
We welcome first years - seniors to participate in the MAlt projects. For 2020-2021 we welcome both in-person students and remote learners to apply to participate in the program.
Each MAlt project typically has a total of 12 participants, including two well-qualified and trained leaders, all Middlebury students.
Trips are free during academic year 2020-2021.
