Alternative May Breaks | May 12-17th







Welcome Home, Breakers!

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. 

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. 

Alternative Break Board Applications Open NOW!

Application CLOSES: Monday, April 15, 2019

Apply HERE for the AB Board!

Please apply using ONLY your Georgia Southern University email account, thanks!

The Alternative Breaks Board  is happy to annouce that our AB Board applications are now OPEN! Are you interested in seeing what goes on behind the scenes of the Alternative Breaks program? Maybe you want to enhance the AB experience? Or maybe you just really love everything about AB and want to be more involved? If you answered YES to any of these questions, I recommend that you apply for the AB Board!

Being part of the AB Board allows you to take on responsibilities that will teach you leadership and teamwork skills. It is also a way for you to share your ideas and collaborate with a team that is just as passionate about AB as you are! Please note that in order to be on the Alternative Break board, you must have gone on at least one (1) Alternative Break.

Check out our Alternative Breaks Board to see what positions are open! Specific questions can be directed to the Alternative Breaks Graduate Assistant, Lexi Booth (

Thing 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!
