Alternative Breaks Board

Mission Statement

Georgia Southern University’s Alternative Breaks Board strives to create a community of active citizens by empowering students to make a global impact through life-changing service opportunities.

What We Do

The Alternative Breaks Board is focused on broadening and expanding the number and scope of Alternative Breaks offered. Student leaders assume primary leadership for this initiative including identifying sites, raising funds, identifying faculty/staff partners, and developing pre-break education and post-break reflection.

2022-2023 Alternative Breaks Board

Cameron Cheatham: Site Coordinator

Hello, I am a junior International Trade major and I currently serve as the Site Coordinator for the Alternative Breaks Board. 

#Ibreakforsocialjustice because it enables us to celebrate and recognize everyone and all of our differences within our community. Social justice ensures that we live in a fair society with equal opportunity. Through breaking for social justice, we are able to use our service to support our community and learn to appreciate each others’ own backgrounds and stories. Participating in Alternative Break and growing together as a community through service is a very special and FUN thing to be a part of!


Jasmine Alexander: Education Chair

Hey all, I’m Jasmine Alexander, a junior Accounting & Information Systems major and I serve as the Education Chair for the Alternative Breaks Board. 

#Ibreakforsocialjustice because I believe it’s important to strive to leave any place we go, better than how we found it. Much of how the world is today is a result of the actions taken by those who came before us. Through our service, we can now continue the work that was left and create an even greater impact for those who come after us. One of the best things about volunteering is that no act of service is too big or too small. Everyone can contribute to change by simply choosing to do so. I’m passionate about service and will continue to break for social justice for the betterment of not only our present but also our future!
