Have you participated in past Alternative Break Experience (ABE) Trips?

Being bilingual is not a requirement.
We require drivers to be 20 years of age or older as of January 4th, 2019 for winter trips and March 1st, 2019 for spring trips, have a valid driver's license and be an acceptable driver according to the description below. Considering that, would you be willing to take the defensive driving course and drive a minibus during your ABE trip? (If you answer "no," skip the next question.)
To all possible drivers:
This is to inform you that the ABE program, in conjunction with CSB Security, will be running Motor Vehicle Records (MVR) checks on all possible drivers to determine driver eligibility. The MVR checks will be run both one month and one week prior to the ABE departures. Please note the following restrictions:


Within the past 5 years:
Driving while intoxicated or under the influence (DWI, DUI)
License suspension
Reckless driving
Drug Charges
Leaving the scene of an accident
Vehicular homicide
Or other similar offenses

Within the past 3 years:
Maximum of two moving violations in combination with one at-fault accident
Maximum of three moving ciolations with no at-fault accidents
Maximum of two at-fault accidents with no moving violations
Driver Info:

Due to the number of applications we receive each year, we cannot guarantee a Co-Leader position to each applicant or for any one particular trip. Knowing your top 3 choices, all other trip interests, reading about your interest in the program, interest in specific trips, and leadership abilities helps us select and pair Co-Leaders.

Each year wonderfully qualified Co-Leader applicants, that we are unable to offer a Co-Leader position to, continue on to interview for a Participant position for a trip of their choice.

Everyone who returns from an ABE trip, regardless of their position, believes they were on 'the best' trip with 'the best' group, so if you don't get your first choice, don't be disappointed. You are still going to have a fantastic experience with a wonderful group of peers.

Thank you for your understanding.

We try our best to accommodate your top choice, but that's not always possible. Please indicate all of your other interests.
