A relatively new program to Student Leaders for Service, Alternative Spring Break provides students the opportuinty to choose to directly immerse themselves within one of several communities in the Pacific Northwest over the course of the week of Spring Break. These trips move beyond Portland neighborhoods to learn more about various social issues and apply skills and time towards these causes. In the past, we have gone to Northern California, San Francisco, and Washington to work with issues of sustainability, agriculture, homelessness, and hunger.
Adopt a family - Every year during the holidays, Campus Rec adopts a family. This provides an opportunity for students and staff of Campus Rec to contribute by purchasing toys, clothing, and other necessities for family of a Portland State University Student that is in need. If you are interested in contributing, wrapping, or helping with the delivery of these items, please contact Jen Armbruster in November to get more information.
For their capstone, students teams work with industry partners to bring a design concept to life. Starting in the fall term, students begin exploring the design process. In winter term, capstone projects are presented to the class and students form their capstone teams. Capstone teams spend the term putting the design process into practice while ensuring they're meeting the needs of the capstone sponsor. Students then roll up their sleeves in spring term and build their prototypes. So far they have made Campus Rec a sit ski and a hand cycle for us!

They serve as a resource for healthy physical activities for the physically disabled by providing support for competitive athletes striving for excellence and by promoting general fitness and providing outlets for recreation and competition. The purpose of those athletic opportunities is to teach and develop life skills (self confidence, socialization, independence, etc.) to people so that they can better participate in society.
