If you're just kicking off an alternative break program on your campus, don't waste valuable time reinventing structures and forms or spinning through questions and problems that many schools have resolved before. Become a Break Away Chapter school, and let us help you quickly build a solid foundation on which you can run your first year of high-impact trips and return galvanized students to steward the program for years to come. You'll find solid and experienced community partners in our SiteBank, lots of templates in the Sample Document Library, and passionate advocates and helpers in our staff.
