Immersion Trips


STM's Alternative Spring Break program was conceived as an opportunity for Catholic students at Yale to take part in a formative, faith-centered and life-changing experience. By immersing themselves in community locally or abroad, participants in ASB have a chance to bear witness to the truly universal nature of the Catholic Church.

Alternative Spring Break Trips 2023:   All students are invited to apply for our 2023 Alternative Spring Break Trips. This year, we are excited to explore the themes of environmental and economic justice, solidarity and indigenous people  through our alternative spring break trips to APPALACHIA, GUATEMALA and NAVAJO NATION, ARIZONA.

Applications are due on October 30th by midnight. Apply here.  Questions?? Contact


The STM Ambassadors program offers an intensive, summertime initiative focused on helping the underserved population wherever you are spending the summer. Students work with a nonprofit agency of their choice on a creative new endeavor that addresses a need and submit the proposal for funding to STM. If selected, the student and the agency could receive up to $5,000 ($2,500 for the agency and $2,500 for the student’s stipend). This project is meant to bring together the needs of the agency and the student’s personal passion.
