The Panther Breakaway program at Georgia State is part of the national Alternative Break program, which organizes community service trips for college students during their spring breaks.
Panther Breakaway places groups of Georgia State University students in communities to engage in service and experiential learning during their spring or winter break. Students perform short-term, meaningful projects and strive to address social issues such as literacy, poverty, racism, hunger, homelessness and environmental awareness. Panther Breakaway students have the chance to become active citizens striving to make a difference in the lives of others and solve community problems.
Instead of partying their break away, students help build strong communities, touch the lives of those in need and form new relationships. The impact of the experience can serve as a catalyst for a life-long commitment to active citizenship. Most students will continue to engage in thoughtful action as they recognize and become more aware of social issues beyond spring or winterbreak.
