Site Leader applications open during the spring semester in April for the following academic year. To apply as a 2021-2022 Site Leader, fill out the following application by Friday, April 23rd. After submission, you will be contacted to schedule an interview time. Any UNA student who will be enrolled for the 2021-2022 academic year is eligible to apply. 


All of our service breaks are student-led!

The Alternative Breaks program provides the opportunity to learn about political and social community dynamics while becoming a catalyst for collaborative social change. Through learning and practice, you will explore the theory of integrating service, education, and reflection to create meaningful change in your community.

As a site leader, you would be responsible for planning an Alternative Break service break focused on a particular social issue, recruiting students to participate, assisting in group and individual fundraisers and executing your assigned service break.  Other responsibilities include but are not limited to attending regular meetings (scheduled based on your availability) with the AB Advisor, conducting pre-trip meetings for your participants, attending SOAR sessions during the summer, etc.

We promise not to leave you hanging! There are many training opportunities for AB Site Leaders including an official Break Away training, Title IX, risk management, CPR certification, and more!  This is genuinely one of the most unique leadership opportunities offered at UNA!

Site Leader selection is based on an interview process. All Site Leaders must have participated on an Alternative Breaks trip prior to application. 

Because the Site Leader position requires extensive time and commitment, Site Leaders receive a one-time scholarship and discounted site fee. 

Perks: One-time $250 scholarship, 75% off of site-fee & a leadership experience unlike any other!
