UACT's collaborations with communities are built around curricular Alternative Breaks designed with a focus on community organizing and social justice. UACT is coordinated by student leaders, all of whom are alumni of UACT. These leaders work with a faculty and staff advisor to manage all aspects of UACT programs: curriculum design, leadership training, classroom facilitation, and fundraising. UACT is a unique partnership of UMass students, faculty and members of grassroots community organizations working together to design programs that build community and promote justice.
