Alternative Break Citizenship Schools

The definitive leadership experience for campuses focused on justice-driven community engagement programs.

For the past 30 years, Break Away has been hosting our summer conference series — the Alternative Break Citizenship Schools (ABCS). The ABCS are experiential training sessions that provide student + staff leaders with the knowledge, skills, and connections they need to start or strengthen a justice-driven community engagement program. 

The ABCS combine workshops and planning sessions to help you develop an action plan for the 2022-2023 academic year and beyond. You can look forward to interactive workshops on social justice education and service-learning best practices, with processing time in a small group setting. The result is a dynamic conference combining learning in workshops with opportunities to foster connections with student + staff leaders from campuses nationwide.

The 2022 ABCS season has ended. Dates for summer 2023 will be announced in early Spring 2023. Please visit break [dash] away [dot] org for the most updated information about the 2023 ABCS and more!
