Alternative Service Break in New Orleans
Trip Dates: March 8-14, 2014
Alternative Service Breaks are designed to create both a volunteer experience and a cultural immersion for UofL student participants. There is a distinct focus on community building, relational leadership, and long-term personal impact. Program outcomes are achieved through direct service, intentional reflection, and shared experience.
ASB trips are not designed to be comfortable. The trips are focused on direct service and meeting the unique needs of a community. Students who choose to participate should do so with an attitude of flexibility and servant-leadership. The trip is truly an alternative to a traditional spring break on the beach. Students who have participated in similar trips described their experiences to be both transformative and rewarding.
