Alternative Winter Break - Paradise, California
Join SCE for Alternative Winter Break! Register here
Our Alternative Winter Break will be held from January 9-15 in Northern California. We’ll be working in the Town of Paradise, which was destroyed in 2018’s Camp Fire. It was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California’s history. The area was also threatened by the Dixie Fire this year and was thankfully spared. We’ll be rebuilding homes with partners like Habitat for Humanity, All Hands and Hearts, Love Builds, and Hope City. Our work will also include fuel mitigation, an important environmental factor in increasing the town’s resistance to future fires. We’ll be staying at a hotel in Chico.

Alternative Breaks are a transformative experience for all involved, from the communities we serve to the students who step out of their comfort zones.
