Program Policies

Joining an alternative break is a meaningful, exciting opportunity. It also involves a lot of responsibility. Please review and consider all of our policies before joining our program. 

 Participant Responsibilities
  • Before the trip: Participants attend all pre-trip meetings with their team and complete any assignments or tasks assigned by their site leaders. 
  • During the trip: Participants take part in strong, direct service to the best of their ability, and engage in daily reflection conversations with their team. Participants abide by all William & Mary and Branch Out policies, including our commitment to full engagement, abstaining from alcohol and drug use during breaks. 
  • After the trip: Participants attend Branch Out’s Welcome Back dinner with their team, join team reorientation efforts, and develop their own post-break action and reorientation plans.
