Follow these steps to become an AB Faculty/Staff Advisor:
1. Do your research. Read the Staff/Faculty Advisor Position Description. Explore the drop-down pages of the “Trip Information” tab to learn more about each of the AB trips and the social issue they address. Determine which trips best match your needs and interests. Also, check out the AB Blog to read up on the experiences of past trips.
2. Attend an AB Meet & Greet. These are scheduled for mid-September each year. Interact with and ask questions of AB staff and Experience Leaders to learn more about each of the different AB experiences. *All prospective Staff/Faculty Advisors must come by one of the Meet & Greet sessions.
3. Submit a Staff/Faculty Advisor application. Applications, found at the link below, ask for basic contact information, a few short responses, an upload of a CV or resume, and for a ranking of preferred AB experiences.
4. Get accepted! Selections are made based on Experience Leaders' and AB Staff's review of applications and Meet and Greet interactions. It is our desire to create highly functioning leadership teams for each of the AB experiences by partnering staff/faculty with co-leaders based on working styles, experience/interest in social issue, strengths and advising capabilities. Staff/Faculty Advisor applicants will be notified by the end of September.
Once selected as a Staff/Faculty Advisor, you will be required to attend Staff/Faculty Advisor trainings. There you will receive important information regarding your role as an AB Advisor in the context of your specific trip, its participants, the social issue you will address, and the Alternative Breaks program as a hole.
