Each summer, Break Away selects current students or recent grads to join our small staff in Atlanta, GA and support our summer ABCs programs. Individuals selected to be Break Away Programs Interns have two areas of focus: Facilitation & Training and Conference Preparation. This includes serving as a facilitator during our national conferences, the Alternative Break Citizenship schools (ABCs). In addition to gaining valuable facilitation experience, individuals have the unique opportunity to assist in conference development: building partnerships with local community organizations, developing curriculum and logistics, creating speaker panels and educational sessions, and serving as peer support for student leaders at the ABCs. Alternative Break experience is required for all applicants and prior attendance at the ABCs is highly preferred.
The duration of the internship is May - August during which time interns will live in Atlanta, GA and work out of Break Away's National Office. If you are interested - or know a friend who may be - in developing facilitation and leadership skills, supporting lifelong active citizenship, and strengthening the national alternative break Movement, you (and your friend) can expect the application to be open from December to January, selections to be made in February, and the interns to be announced in March.
