Join us for the Spring 2021 Alternative Breaks Dialogue Program!

Do you want to connect with your peers? Learn about social issues? Do direct service? If so, the Alternative Breaks Dialogue Program is for you! Any student, undergraduate or graduate, who wants to explore community development, civic engagement, local issues, leadership, and service should consider joining. 
Program Details:
  • The Alternative Breaks Dialogue Program looks to build a world in which UMD students are empowered learners in community together, taking action toward just causes.
  • Through deliberative and reflective dialogues addressing global social issues, student participants will exchange and evaluate different ideas and approaches that challenge specific social, political and economic structures of our global community. 
  • Direct service with a local community partner will demonstrate how students can turn their knowledge into action in safe, responsible, and sustainable ways.
  • Interested students must be willing to commit 1.5 hours/week for 8 weeks between February 15th, 2021 - April 9th, 2021. 
  • The experience is free!
