Miner Challenge Alternative Break Program

What is Miner Challenge?

Miner Challenge is Missouri S&T's Alternative Break Program. Every year, students engage in immersive volunteer experiences across the U.S. over Spring Break.  Participants bond with a small team while they develop leadership skills, gain awareness of social issues, and work to improve communities.

It's Giving Season!

'Tis the time of the year for our annual Letter Campaign, our largest fundraiser through which generous donors pledge to support our program through donating various amounts.  Donations of any size are appreciated and put to good use paying for expenses such as providing food, transportation, and lodging to our 72 volunteers who will be setting out to serve communities across the US and in Costa Rica for Spring Break 2020.  Donations received also help us provide scholarships to participants to help our program be more accessible and help any student who wants to be involved to participate.

To donate to our program, please visit give.mst.edu and fill out the form.  In the Designation box, select Miner Challenge under the Initiatives section (Dec 1-Feb 1).  All donations are tax-deductible and we really appreciate your support!!
