We are grateful to have been recognized with Break Away’s 2016 T-Shirt of the Year award! This shirt was created as a fun way to celebrate our 25 years at Grand Valley State University, and it is in honor of all the incredible student leaders, alumni, faculty, and community partners who have contributed so much to our program.
We thank Break Away for this honor, BonfireFunds for providing us with a platform to create the shirts, all of the active citizens to whom the shirt is dedicated, and all of the alternative break programs throughout the country that inspire, encourage, and challenge us to grow.

We would also like to congratulate all of the other excellent programs, organizations, and individuals who won 2016 National Alternative Break Awards!
Student leaders in our organization recorded a total of 1,400.5 hours on Service Tracker, earning Grand Valley Alternative Breaks an award for the highest total hours reported by a student organization for the 2015-2016 school year.
Thank you to all who have contributed to our organization this year– none of this would be possible without your invested time and energy! Together, let’s move forward and continue to create positive change and cultivate active citizenship in our community.
