Alternative Break Service Trips with Livingston CARES

Planning for our 2019-2020 alternative break service trips is already underway! We will update this site with detailed trip information as it becomes available including the finalized trip locations, cost of each trip, the number of available spots, and trip specific logistics. Registration for all 2020 trips will open on October 1, 2019.


We expect to coordinate six trips to four different locations in 2020. Currently we are planning to send volunteers to: Puerto Rico, the Florida Keys and Panhandle, and Ocean County NJ. This list is subject to change.


Trips will take place over the Winter Recess: Jan. 11 - 18, 2020; Spring Break: March 14 - 21, 2020; and the beginning of Summer Recess: May 16 - 23, 2020.


There is a cost for all Livingston CARES Alternative Break Service Trips. The fees pay for airfare, food and lodging, ground transportation on site, and insurance. We seek to offer a range of trips with different costs to work for a range of budgets. The range of fees starts with with our trip to New Jersey which will cost approximately $200-$300, and our trip(s) to Puerto Rico which will cost approximately $800-$1,000.
