2017 Alternative Break Citizenship Schools
2017 Alternative Break Citizenship Schools – early bird registration by April 14, 2017; Regular registration by May 12, 2017
The annual gathering of active citizens has begun! Join the Break Away staff and campus leaders from colleges and universities across the nation for a week that will enrich your alternative break program, expand your leadership potential, and determine the direction of the national Movement. Alternative Break Citizenship schools (ABCs) combine the intensity of an authentic alternative break experience with innovative training and networking opportunities to share ideas and best practices for programs while promoting active citizenship.
For over 25 years Break Away has provided schools with quality training to further the alternative break movement. The ABCs are the only experiential training conferences dedicated entirely to creating quality alternative break programs. Whether you are interested in starting alternative breaks on your campus or are coming from a well-established program, this conference will accelerate the depth and breadth of your work.
