Branch Out Coordinators lead the Branch Out program to ensure that all experiences fulfill the Branch Out mission. Coordinators train and advise Site Leaders, develop trips in collaboration with community partners, and promote and recruit for the overall program. All Coordinators serve as part of "Trunk," meeting weekly for planning, feedback, and collaboration. Coordinators are selected in late March.
Site Leaders plan and lead each alternative break trip, juggling varied and exciting responsibilities ranging from managing a budget and recruiting participants, to facilitating reflection and planning issue education, to shopping for peanut butter and creating travel playlists. They are recruited in late March.
All applications are available in early spring. Subscribe to the OCE and Branch Out listservs for deadlines and application information, apply on GivePulse, and contact [[wmbranchout]] with any questions.
