The Alternative Break program is looking for interested students to plan and lead next year’s alternative break trips. Every winter, spring and summer break, the program sends hundreds of students on service-learning trips across the nation and world to address some of today’s most pressing social, political and environmental challenges. The program’s main goal is to educate participants about the root causes of issues, while also making an immediate difference in the community.
Whether you’re interested in promoting student engagement around a particular issue such as disaster relief, HIV/AIDS, education, homelessness, health care and immigration, or looking to learn more about these issues yourself, being an Alternative Break Trip Leader will provide you with invaluable leadership experience. In addition to helping guide the direction of the AB program, trip leaders will also receive a 30% trip discount.
To submit an application or learn more about becoming an Alternative Break Trip Leader, visit www.thestamp.umd.edu/ab or attend an info session on April 13th @ 6pm in Crossland Room, Stamp Student Union
Applications are due today Monday, April 18th 2011 at 5:00pm.
