The Alternative Breaks Movement: The 2015-2016 Year in Review

Check out this excellent infographic that Break Away created to illustrate the impact made by alternative break programs across the country during the 2015-2016 year.

‪Grand Valley Alternative Breaks is a small part of a much larger Movement started by our parent organization, Break Away, and we are inspired and encouraged by all of the programs, active citizens, and communities that contribute to this bigger picture.

To illustrate the impact made by all alternative break programs, Break Away created an infographic (show above) that depicts the numbers of AB participants, community partners, trips, hours of direct service, and other interesting statistics. Check it out!

To learn more about the Alternative Breaks Movement, check out Break Away: The Alternative Break Connection‘s National Chapter Survey Results and the 2015 Annual Report.

At the local level, the 2015-2016 year has been one of growth and learning, and we are grateful to all of the student leaders, alumni, GVSU faculty members, AB programs throughout the country, community partners, and everyone else who has contributed to our program and made this year a success. We could not have done it without you– thank you!
