Apply today to lead an Alternative Break Experience!


I wanted to become an Experience Leader after the EL’s on my trips inspired me to give back to my community. Sure, we can’t change the world, but we can change as far our fingertips reach, and being an EL has been incredibly rewarding for me in gaining leadership experience and being more aware of the world around me. -- Nicku Keshavarz ‘19

"Everyone around you has a story the world needs to hear" --Dave Isay, Founder of StoryCorps


What is the story of your community? What stories are around you that you haven’t gotten to listen to yet? What’s your story? What story do you want to tell 10 years from now?


Through the art of listening and storytelling, Activation Academy focuses on understanding, engaging with, and leading in communities. In partnership with Good Neighbor Day, you’ll explore our local community of College Park while collecting and crafting compelling narratives from students, alumni, and community leaders using the StoryCorps app. You’ll be able to apply conversations and activities as your write the next chapter in your own story.


Activation Academy is free of cost, open to all students, and takes place April 12th-13th on and around campus.
