Alternative Break Board Applications

Becoming a Board Member

"I am challenged every day, and am growing into the leader I have always wanted to be. This program means the world to me, and I am proud to be a board member."

We are looking for enthusiastic, hard-working people who are really committed to AB and the Volunteer Center.

Our selection process is competitive and requires both an application and an interview with the Student Coordinators.

If chosen as a Board Member, you will be required to attend weekly Alternative Breaks Board Meetings every Thursday at 5:00 p.m.  Board members are expected to spend additional hours each week working on AB business outside of the meetings, including at least one hour every week in the Volunteer Center or Alternative Breaks Office. Extra time commitments may be needed as Breaks near.

Please read over the descriptions of each position below and indicate in your application which positions you feel most qualified for. However, applications are not position-specific.

Previous participation on at least one Alternative Break and a GPA of 2.5 or higher is required to be a Board Member. If the requirement is met, GPA will not be factored into applications. Applications will be available via the Engage form. Applications may be saved and finished in more than one sitting. No paper applications will be accepted.

If you have any questions, please contact an Alternative Breaks Board Member, email, or contact the Volunteer Center (989-774-7685). After submitting an application, you will receive an email from Engage saying you have completed a form (if your settings are set to receive emails).

Description of Positions:

    Student Coordinators maintain the Alternative Breaks program on a holistic level, ensuring the big picture of the program is being achieved. Individuals split responsibility throughout the year.
