Alternative Break Citizenship schools

The definitive leadership experience for campuses focused on justice-driven alternative break 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-centered alternative break program. 

The ABCs combine workshops and intensive planning sessions to help you develop an action plan for the 2021-2022 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.
