Have you ever wanted to give back to Arkansas Tech or the Russellville community? Then this is YOUR chance! Through a wide variety of service options, you will have the opportunity to not only help make your campus a beautiful place, but the Russellville area beautiful as well.
Since its inception in 2013, this annual fall program has provided students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to reach out and engage in our community as a unified group. Green and Gold Give Back allows for us as a campus to give back to our community non-profits, philanthropic efforts, and those who are in need.

Alternative Spring Break is an opportunity for students to go to another community and give back during their Spring Break. Students do this by volunteering with different community agencies. Not only do students participate in community service, they also have the chance to explore the city and be a "tourist".
For the 7th annual Alternative Spring Break, the Office of Civic Engagement will be taking 10 students to serve and explore a new community. Alternative Spring Break will be hosted in March 2024 - you won't want to miss out on this exciting adventure! Additional information will be announced as it comes available.
Deadline to apply: TBD
Cost: There is a $100 non-refundable deposit that selected students must pay to attend the trip.
WHAT HAVE PAST PARTICIPANTS HAD TO SAY ABOUT SPENDING THEIR SPRING BREAK VOLUNTEERING?
"...it is a great experience that allows you to get to form new friendships with students that you probably wouldn't normally meet on campus, visit and experience a new city, and make a difference in a community."
"My favorite aspects of this trip to Nashville was getting to know the other students that went; I feel we all bonded really well and became friends. I also liked that we got to explore the city and have new experiences that we can't get in Arkansas. I also enjoyed getting the opportunity to help people in the Nashville community."
"The diversity of people we worked with...was very rewarding to get to serve so many different people and see a large city with different options."
