GW students traveled to six locations in March as far as Costa Rica and Ecuador to engage in service as part of the GW Alternative Breaks Program.

A group in Washington, D.C., learned more about sexual health and domestic violence, while their peers in New Orleans built houses with Habitat for Humanity. Students traveled to New York City to serve the homeless population and students in Kanab, Utah, spent the week building fences and socializing with dogs at Best Friends Animal Society.

Groups in Costa Rica learned about sustainable development, and in Ecuador, students focused on community development.
