Alternative Breaks Dialogue Program | Participant Application Open!
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 an in-person series of intentional and reflective dialogues addressing global social issues, student participants will exchange and evaluate different approaches that challenge specific structures of our global community. Participants will also do service with local community partners to discover how they can turn their knowledge into action in safe, responsible, and sustainable ways.
Interested students must be able to commit 1.5 hours/week for 5 weeks between Sunday, October 10, 2021 - Saturday, November 13, 2021. Participant applications will open Monday, August 2nd, 2021.

“Being on this trip reinforced my perspectives on countering corruption and the importance of speaking up when I feel something is wrong. I plan to continue my involvement by holding others and myself accountable when faced with actions that don't align with integrity and environmental conservation.” - AWB New Orleans Participant
