Catalyst Alternative Spring Break Trips Catalyst uses direct service to investigate questions of justice and community. These trips are designed to provide you with an opportunity to participate in community service projects over spring break. Donate to Catalyst We strive to make each trip affordable to students through low costs and by offering scholarships. Students will pay no more than $400 to trips that sometimes cost upwards of $1300! In order to make this happen, we need your help. Please consider donating to Catalyst Alternative Breaks so that all Hamline students have the opportunity to participate. Very important: To ensure that donations go entirely to Catalyst, please include a note in the comment section of the donation form saying "the 'other' section, under the 'designation' field". Donate here! Thank you very much for your time and donation!
