UVA Law Alternative Spring Break 2017 Application
Thank you for your interest in spending your spring break volunteering at one of these great organizations!

You will be able to choose up to 4 trips that you are interested in, and will be assigned according to preference on a first-come, first serve basis and according to which trips have enough interest.

You can also sign up to serve as the trip leader. Trip leaders act as the main point of contact for the host organization and coordinate, though are not solely responsible for, team planning activities including logistics and fundraising.

Please note that if you are accepted for a trip, there will be a $50 seat deposit that will be refunded in full provided you have gone on the trip.

More information about the program for those unable to attend the informational sessions can be found at: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1TnFyUPGlOBtXq0cB6VvIq9d_MaPjyClum14yljPkzdU/edit?usp=sharing

Direct any questions to skl2tb@virginia.edu.
