Many an active citizen has been inspired by the great work Martin Luther King, Jr. did for justice. In honor of King's vision of a beloved community, alternative breakers at William & Mary engage in our region every in January in honor of MLK weekend. In 2019, note that it will not take place during the MLK holiday weekend.
The application will be available on our TribeLink under Forms, by the end of October 2018.
All winter weekend alternative breaks span from Saturday, January 13 to Monday, January 15. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to Williamsburg before the start of the trip. We're proud to be able to offer our MLK weekend breaks for free to W&M students, thanks to the generosity of William & Mary families through the Parent's Fund.
