Faculty-Staff Trip Advisers for Alternative Break Needed

The Civic and Community Engagement Office is looking for faculty and staff members to serve in an essential role as trip advisers for one of the 2018–2019 Alternative Break trip experiences. Trip advisers are NOT expected to plan or organize the logistics—student site leaders take care of the coordination—however, trip advisers are positioned to help student site leaders carry out logistics of the experience and solve problems or emergencies. Serving as trip advisers allows faculty and staff members to build strong connections with community-minded students and volunteer alongside them during a weekend or weeklong trip experience. 

Alternative Break trip experiences in need of faculty or staff trip advisers:

  • Alternative Fall Break: Cultivating Empathy and Embracing Diversity through Refugee Resettlement in Buffalo, New York; November 9–11, 2018
  • Alternative Spring Break: Understanding Alternative Measures to the Juvenile Justice System in Columbus, Ohio; March 23–30, 2019
  • Alternative Spring Break: Shifting Principles and Practices Related to Housing and Food Policy in Cleveland, Ohio; March 23–30, 2019
  • Alternative Summer Break: Collaborative Approaches to Securing Food for All in Baltimore, Maryland; May 19–26, 2019

If you are interested in learning more, please complete the online interest form and review the trip adviser section of the CCE website.
