Branch Out Coordinators lead the Branch Out program, working closely with the Fellow for Alternative Breaks 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. Watch the OCE listserv for deadlines and application information, or contact [[ghymel, Grace Hymel]].
