Break A Difference aims to assist young adults and emerging professionals in building a Life of Service. During a Break A Difference program you will have the opportunity to experience the work of multiple non-profit partners, learn from industry leaders making change in their communities, and develop the skills needed to lead on campus and for years to come.

Break A Difference is a high touch, immersive opportunity. Joining a B•A•D team opens the door to exploring all a city has to offer; issues you are and will be passionate about; and developing a network of like minded peers across the county.
