The Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program gives students the opportunity to engage in direct service in collaboration with communities around the world. Students who participate spend 5-7 days, during spring break, learning about critical challenges facing communities, interacting with local leaders, and performing short-term projects for community agencies.
