AB Participants

Welcome home, Breakers!

Click the link below to view the Alternative Breaker application that is currently open!


Note for new participants: The Georgia Southern Alternative Break program operates with an “issue first” focus, meaning we keep our site locations quiet until Site Reveal each week-long break cycle. This is done so you can focus on selecting a social issue you are passionate about first and foremost during the application process. 

Something to Know: The Alternative Breaks program is aligning our service with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. As you read through our break blurbs, take a second to click the link to the SDG(s) your break of interest is aligned with to learn a little more about it!

Not sure what social issues you are interested in? No problem! Contact any of our Alternative Break Board members or feel free to take the brief Social Issues Inventory to get a feel for the type of service projects/issues you might be interested in. 

Feel unprepared to serve? We’ve got you! Check out our Ready to Serve page for tips and tricks about how to mentally and physically prepare to serve others. If you’re still feeling uneasy, reach out to a member of the Alternative Break Board, your site leader, the AB Graduate Assistant, or the AB Coordinator!


If you have any questions, contact Kasie Thompson kasiethompson@georgiasouthern.edu or 912-478-1435.
