Student Leadership Opportunities

Serve, Learn, Lead!


Alternative Break participants get the opportunity to focus on one of the four issue areas we will be focusing on this year and spend their Spring Break 2023 partnering with an organization that works within the same field! Some issue areas include: Housing and Food Insecurity, Community Empowerment and Sustainability, and Environmental Justice.



Trip Leader

GW Alternative Breaks Trip Leaders facilitate the Alternative Breaks experience for participants through diverse roles and responsibilities such as community partner correspondence, pre-trip educational programming, fundraising, budget management, reflection and meeting facilitation, and more. Apply now to serve, learn, and discover as a student leader!



Executive Board

The Executive Board, made up of 4-5 positions, will work with staff from the Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service to plan and execute the goals and mission of the GW Alternative Breaks Program as well as assist leaders with the planning and execution of the service trips or virtual/hybrid service learning experiences.
