Top 3 reasons you should join our U by Kotex Alternative Spring Break

You could spend this spring break watching Netflix and cleaning sand out of all your clothes. Or you could spend it in the nation’s capital working with a group of 25 college-aged women to empower women and girls in service and advocacy.

Um, yes please!

March 15-20, United Way is partnering with Kimberly-Clark Corporation (of U by Kotex) to host the Alternative Spring Break of a lifetime in and around Washington, DC. Here are just three of the many reasons you should apply by the Feb. 13 deadline.

  1. 25 brilliant, driven women: We’re rounding up some stellar, passionate women leaders from colleges across the country. You’ll serve in teams by day and form a community by night. These 25 will probably teach you just as much as your experience here.
  2. Meet Be leaders on Capitol Hill: You’ll get to advocate for policy change and lead the way to creating a better world for women and girls. You’ll also get to meet some powerful leaders—other than the 25 of you—on the Hill. The issues you’ll be advocating for and the service projects you’ll be taking part in focus on some of the issues most critical to women, such as human trafficking, STEM education for girls, teen and women’s health, woman leadership in various realms and more.

  3. It’s free: Yup, all of it. Thanks to Kimberly-Clark, we’ll be covering the cost of participation—food, lodging, etc.—and your travel to and from the Washington, DC area.
