Become a Learning Partner

A Learning Partner is an integral member of the Alternative Breaks learning experience. Learning Partners are faculty and staff who participate as a team member of a GW Alternative Breaks trip. While Learning Partners are not responsible for the general planning of the trip, Learning Partners do serve in a more hands-on role through expertise in the issue area of the trip or geographic location, assisting with risk management, as well as guiding students during their personal development.
 Learning partners must be either full or part time faculty/staff at GW.
Learning Partner Apps are now closed. Please consider applying next year!
