Alternative Breaks Dialogue Program | Participant Application Open | Don't wait!

posted on December 12, 2020

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 a virtual 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 8 weeks between February 15th, 2021 - April 9th, 2021. Participant applications will close on Sunday, January 31, 2021. Email with questions about this program or check out our website:

LCSL Land Acknowledgment

Every community owes its existence and strength to the generations before them, around the world, who contributed their hopes, dreams, and energy into making the history that led to this moment. Some were brought here against their will, some were drawn to migrate from their homes in hope of a better life, and some have lived on this land for more generations than can be counted. Truth and acknowledgment are critical in building mutual respect and connections across all barriers of heritage and difference.

The Leadership and Community Service-Learning office believes it is important to create dialogue to honor those that have been historically and systemically disenfranchised. So, we acknowledge the truth that is often buried: We are on the ancestral lands of the Piscataway People, who were among the first in the Western Hemisphere. We are on indigenous land that was stolen from the Piscataway People by European colonists. We pay respects to Piscataway elders and ancestors. Please take a moment to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that bring us together here today. Learn More
