Due to high demand, we are seeking to increase the number of Alternative Spring Breaks the Scholars Program runs next year. To this end, we are currently seeking four (4) Scholars Alternative Spring Break Coordinators for our Program. In this role, you would work with the staff of the Scholars Program and the Center for Community Service, as well as your peers to do much of the planning for our spring breaks. Responsibilities entail:
- Researching sites and projects for our community's Alternative Spring Breaks
- Coordinating communications between NUSP/Center for Community Service and our partner organizations
- Managing initial trip logistics, including site contracts, travel, miscellaneous
NUSP Alternative Spring Break Coordinators will NOT necessarily be the leaders of the breaks that are chosen, though they are strongly encouraged to apply for those positions once we have decided upon our trips.
Scholars will receive CEP hours for their service.
Additionally, the Scholars Program will be sponsoring our Scholars ASB Coordinators to attend the 2015 Alternative Spring Break Citizenship School that will be held from July 25th – 31st, 2015 in the Grand Canyon National Park (next year will mark the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service). The ABCs are week-long experiential training sessions that provide college student leaders the knowledge, skills, and connections they need to start or strengthen a quality alternative break program. The ABCs combine workshops, discussions, and planning sessions within an actual alternative break experience. In an ideal world, our coordinators will be able to attend this conference.
Timeline and Commitment
Starting at the end of July, including ABC training, until late in October (if the coordinators are not ASB Team Leaders). If you are selected as an ASB Team Leader, the commitment will continue through the ASB.
Time commitment will likely range between 3-5 hours per week, though this may vary.
