About Us

Michigan Active Citizens (MAC) is an student organization at the University of Michigan committed to sending students on service-learning based spring break trips since 1990. We accomplish this through established community partnerships with 25 sites, thorough education and training for all site leaders and participants, and thoughtful campus engagement. It is important to us that participants of MAC Alternative Spring Breaks have a holistic understanding of social justice, their selected site topic, and the intersectionality associated with all of our site topics. Our goal is to cultivate a community on the University of Michigan campus of Active Citizens who take part in positive social change for their lives during spring break, their college careers, and their lives after college.
