Why should REACH coordinate your Alternative Break?

- Your work will be relevant, beneficial, and equitable. REACH’s commitment to the ideas and applications of Asset-based Community Development means your service will complement—not replace—the work of skilled builders and human services workers in Southeast Roanoke.
- You will learn. REACH’s Executive Director has postgraduate credentialing in education and several decades of experience in coordinating and inspiring volunteers. REACH’s community partners can lead discussions and give talks on various social justice and nonprofit themes.
- REACH’s community partners will dote on you. REACH’s Executive Director is highly connected within Roanoke, which translates into a wide array of potential service opportunities and oftentimes lunches prepared by REACH’s wonderful partners, a perfect time for extended conversation.

- REACH ABs are cheap. REACH needs you, not the other way around. REACH keep prices competitively low on account of a focus on bringing volunteers to Southeast Roanoke, as opposed to making a profit.
