Break Away is a national nonprofit, although only has three staff. Break Away manages relationships with our chapter schools and 400+ community partners. Additionally, Break Away holds trainings for student and staff leaders, along with other programs, that move the active citizen movement forward. Therefore, Break Away is not able to give these types of grants to programs without additional support. This grant will let Break Away encourage colleges to send more trips focused on education. Education is currently the fourth most common social issue schools focus on during alternative breaks, committing over 37,000 hours of service last year. Break Away’s goal is that these programs focusing on education develop stronger service and meaningful interactions with students. This funding will let Break Away encourage colleges to not just send education focused trips; it will encourage them to send trips that can be a real part of a plan to improve school environments and student education.See Idea Details remind me
