Alternative Spring Break (ASB) and Alternative Winter Break (AWB) trips provide students the opportunity to travel to different communities and engage in direct service to benefit their host community. ASB and AWB trips strive to promote a life long service ethic by encouraging students to examine their roles in community.
"I have definitely gained a greater appreciation and understanding of how people can support each other, share their lives, and develop lasting friendships."
