    2020 & 2021 Catalyst Site Leader Application (canceled due to Covid-19)

    Become a site leader

    Each year, Catalyst hires two Site Leaders for each spring break trip. Site Leaders are Hamline students who are responsible for creating the vision for each trip and finding service projects and experiential learning opportunities for their group to participate in during the trip. These leaders are then additionally responsible for leading a group of 8-10 students throughout their spring break trip.

    The 2020 Catalyst Alternative Spring Break site leader application is now closed. Check back next year for information on being a Catalyst 2022 site leader.
