Site leaders are co-student leaders on each Alternative Break trip. Site Leaders will be primarily responsible for the logistics, budgeting, site coordination, on-site education, issue education in addition to making sure their trip includes all 8 Components of a Quality Alternative Break (strong direct service, alcohol and drug-free, diversity, orientation, education, training, reflection, and reorientation upon return). Site leaders are also responsible for recruitment of participants for their trip. Site leaders work with other board members to fundraise and advertise for their trip.
