2018-2019 UK Alternative Service Breaks Site Leader Application
Thank you for your interest in applying to be a 2018-2019 UK Alternative Service Breaks (ASB) Site Leader! Through the UK Center for Community Outreach (CCO) and the national service organization Break Away, the University of Kentucky Alternative Service Breaks program connects students with service projects in communities beyond the borders of Lexington and Kentucky. We aim to provide service experiences that are educational and cultural, and to promote active citizenship among UK students, faculty, and staff.
UK ASB seeks qualified and dedicated UK students to serve as Site Leaders for our 2018-2019 UK Alternative Service Breaks, or service immersions that take place during weekends, winter break, spring break, and summer break. Our service immersions range in duration from from one weekend to two weeks, domestic to international service, and address a wide variety of social and environmental issues. Please take a moment to view our past service immersions by clicking here.
UK ASB Site Leaders will be required to attend weekly meetings on Thursdays from 6-7:30pm, in addition to enrolling in our UK ASB leadership course in both the Fall and Spring Semesters (if new to the program). Selection as a member of the 2018-2019 UK ASB Site Leader is contingent upon your ability to fulfill both of these commitments as well as the specific roles and responsibilities of site leaders. Upon successful completion of the course and your position, UK ASB Site Leaders receive a 50% discount, or subsidy, off the total cost of their assigned service immersion trip.
For more information about UK ASB, and the specific roles and responsibilities of this position, please review this info packet.
