Student Advisory Board

The Alternative Break Program (ABP) Student Board is made up of student leaders with a passion for civic engagement and who have extensive service trip experience.

The Student Board responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Help interested students think through the various aspects of organizing a trip such as logistical details, fundraising questions and how to develop and manage a team.
  • Review and make acceptance decisions regarding preliminary proposals.
  • Review and make acceptance and funding recommendations to CAE regarding final proposals.
