JMU Faculty and Staff are invited to learn all about becoming a Learning Partner with JMU’s nationally recognized Alternative Break Program (ABP).

Each year, over 600 JMU students participate in student-led service-learning experiences through ABP. Each break is accompanied by a faculty/staff Learning Partner (LP). The LP participates in the break as a team member and is not responsible for leadership or logistics. Learning Partners add to the Alternative Break team by:
· Contributing their life and professional perspective.
· Being a mature influence to encourage students to make wise decisions
· Acting as a resource for agency site leaders by providing advice and/or support
· Building relationships with student break leaders and participants while in a non-traditional role
· Encouraging long-term relationships between the AB program and other JMU offices
· Serving as the legal representative of JMU for the break in case of accident or emergency

Breaks range from a weekend to a week in length and serve in Virginia, throughout the continental U.S., and in the Caribbean and Central America. Join us to learn more about how you can support student service and leadership!
