Break Away

Alternative Break Citizenship schools

Posted on April 16, 2018

The definitive leadership experience for campuses focused on student-driven alternative break programs.
The ABCs are week-long experiential training sessions that provide college student and staff leaders the knowledge, skills, and connections they need to start or strengthen a quality alternative break program.

The ABCs combine workshops, discussions, and planning sessions within an actual alternative break experience. Throughout the week, participants spend time engaging in direct service work and in small group sessions that focus on the details and best practices of alternative breaks.

The result is a dynamic experiential learning opportunity that encourages participants to synthesize knowledge and skills gained in workshops with inspiring and educational contact with community members and other student and staff leaders from college campuses nationwide.
