Alternative Spring Break
What is Alternative Spring Break?
Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is a program that gives students the opportunity to take part in a service project during their scheduled spring break. The ASB program encourages active citizenship by providing service opportunities addressing issues within the community, and providing support to our community partners.
ASB offers students the opportunity to attend trips with a site facilitator to experience a unique hands-on opportunity to make a difference in various communities and the lives of countless individuals.
Mission Statement: The mission of Alternative Spring Break is to encourage students to use time outside of the University to be an active participant in the local community, and addressing issues in social justice, while providing support to make a difference.
Students will reach the following objectives in participating with Alternative Spring Break.

Students will provide service for the community, while learning about the social justice issues which created the need for these organizations.
Students will be introduced to other options for future projects, as well as obtaining the resources necessary to participate in individual opportunities with the partners.
