MAlt is Middlebury’s alternative break program. In 2014-2015 MAlt will offer two international, three domestic, and one regional student-led service trip over February break.

What Are the Responsibilities of a Middlebury Alternative Break Trip Leader?
MAlt trip leaders are responsible for trip logistics, group dynamics, education, and reflection before, during, and after the break.  Logistical responsibilities include helping to recruit and select participants, choosing appropriate worksites for the trip’s theme, initiating and maintaining ongoing contact with worksite coordinators to ensure rewarding service work for both participants and the community partner, drafting and maintaining a budget, creating a daily itinerary, arranging travel plans (e.g., plane reservations, car rentals, College van reservations, accommodations, etc.), and planning meals. Trip leaders work closely with the MAlt Executive Board and the MAlt advisor (Ashley Laux, Associate Director, Community Engagement).  Trip leaders are also responsible for coordinating group fundraising efforts and ensuring that fundraising goals (which may be substantial) are met.  Please Note: Leading a MAlt trip is a rewarding but demanding opportunity. You should expect to devote a significant amount of time to your trip pre-departure, including some level of research and planning during the summer.

Application Information: We have reopened the application for domestic trips! Complete this application with a co-leader and e-mail it to middalt@middlebury.edu by Wednesday, May 7th. These trips can be to any location within the US, and this year we will also be looking for strong applications in the New England region. This past year MAlt domestic trips traveled to New Orleans, South Carolina, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania.

Here’s how some MAlters described their trips in one word: community, warmth, eye-opening, growth, intense, challenging, humbling, real, soulful, marvelous, robust, refreshing, fantastic, and unforgettable.
