This Spring Break, BreakAway will be going to Eugene, Oregon. Partnered with Friends of Buford Park and Mount Pisgah, student volunteers will be participating in learning and environmental restoration efforts. Participants will build skills, make meaningful connections, and make a difference in the community.
BreakAway does service trips during weekends and school breaks. Through this immersion, coupled with reflective practices, participants make connections, build skills, and create change in their community.
BreakAway doesn’t just impact our local and national communities, but gives participants lifelong skills and a more in-depth look at the social issues being addressed. Past participants have gotten job experience, internships, and more. Most importantly, they have gained a better understanding of themselves and the importance of community service work.
How much will this cost?
Address any financial concerns by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
The required application fee for BreakAway is $50. This helps to cover training expenses. This is the only fee charged directly to participants. BreakAway participants are each expected to fundraise the remaining cost of the trip with the support of the BreakAway Coordinator and their BreakAway team. This can be done through personal outreach, fundraising events, and personal donation. We encourage creativity and collaboration to successfully raise this amount. Any funds raised that are not used will be available for future BreakAway funding. If you need support with your deposit, contact the BreakAway Coordinator.
How do I join?
