Break Away is a grassroots-driven, community-oriented, change-making national nonprofit that is truly inspiring to have been part of. As someone who has worked with and volunteered for numerous for-profit and not-for-profit entities, Break Away has had the single most profound impact on my life - forcing me to consider the community in my everyday life choices. While I may not yet be what Break Away considers a complete "active citizen," it did a tremendous job showing me how I can learn to become one. Everyone should take an alternative break trip and help others to do so.
