Spring Break New Haven

Spring Break New Haven

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Spring Break New Haven is temporarily on hiatus and will not be held during Spring 2021. We are very sorry to all those who would participate, and hope you are all safe and healthy.


Spring Break New Haven is a week-long immersion program provides a broad introduction to New Haven and its many treasures and challenges through service and conversation with various neighbors, non-profit organizations, and religious communities, plus exposure to restaurants, public parks, the local art scene, and more.  Each day we’ll visit a different neighborhood and spend some time getting to know the area and then gather back at the Chaplain’s Office in the evenings for dinner, discussion and reflection on the intersections between our own lives and those of our neighbors. We ask you to commit for the full week. Come explore the city you live in and consider what it means to call this place home.

Who: Open to all Yale undergrad, grad, and professional students. Students of any or no religious tradition are welcome to participate.
When: TBD – On hiatus until Spring 2022
Where: Here in New Haven! You will sleep in your regular on-campus or off-campus housing; no special housing accommodations are part of this program.
Cost: $50, scholarships available.  Meals and transportation provided.
