Wake Alternative Break (WAB) is a week-long alternative spring break program for Wake Forest undergraduate students that provides service-learning trips based on specific social issues.

Each trip places an emphasis on service, community building, experiential learning, and reflection. Inspiring participants to return to campus motivated to positively impact their university, local, national, and international communities.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and trips are filled first-come, first-served. Accepted students will meet with their Wake Alternative Break trip leaders during the spring semester to prepare for their trips.
