Alternative Break service trips are typically led by two student co-leaders and a faculty/staff Learning Partner. The students are responsible for the trip logistics, communication with the partner service agency, team development, and facilitating group reflection sessions. The Learning Partner participates as team member and is not responsible for the leadership or logistics of the trip. During the May trip, however, Learning Partners serve in a more hands-on role

It is important that Learning Partners participate in all team activities. This includes participation in all activities during the trip and several group meetings before and after the trip. View a list of upcoming trip on the Alternatvie Break website.
