VOLbreaks Learning Partners

Learning Partners

An integral part of this program is our faculty/staff and graduate assistant learning partners (LPs). These members are not involved in planning the trip but serve in an advisory capacity throughout the duration of the trip. Learning partners aid the student trip leaders if any issues arise on the trip, and they get to fully experience an Alternative Break trip while volunteering alongside the students. More information about the LP role can be found in this VOLbreaks Learning Partner FAQs document. For those who are interested in serving as an LP for the VOLbreaks program, you should still fill out and submit the following form: Permission To Attend 2022-2023

Serving as a Learning Partner is a fantastic way to meet other UT students and staff while giving back to a new community. There is no trip cost associated with being a Learning Partner. Each trip consists of nine student participants, two student trip leaders, and one learning partner.

At this time, applications for the 2022-2023 academic year are closed. Please return to site summer 2023 for more information on Learning Partner applications for the 2023-2024 academic year.
