Break Away is the national alternative break organization with the vision of a society of active citizens: people who make community a priority in their values and life choices. Thousands of college students are galvanized by participating in transformative service trips, then graduate into what the Corporation for National Service has identified as the second lowest civically engaged age group: 25-34. While alternative breaks may end with graduation, active citizenship does not. Active citizenship is a changed perspective that impacts how individuals think, speak, and act. To re-energize the thousands of lifelong active citizens, Break Away is reaching out to graduates of alternative break programs from the last 20 years. We will take this opportunity of renewing our civic vows to gather staff, alumni, students, and supporters to join us in declaring our identities as active citizens – renewing our commitment to the community around us and pledging to a year of specific action.
