Alternative Service Break Extended Experiences


The Alternative Service Break (ASB) program is a unique learning experience in which students engage in direct service to a community while being immersed in the culture. Teams are led by students and accompanied by faculty advisors. Throughout the trip, team members participate in a variety of cultural, educational, recreational and reflective activities to enhance their service experience. During Fall/Spring Break our student groups volunteer in NC, across the country, and around the world. Teams sponsored by Leadership and Civic Engagement and other campus partners focus on water quality and sanitation; affordable housing; youth education and empowerment; medical clinics; GLBT and civil rights; and environmental issues. Several other service trips give students an opportunity to minister to others in locations around the globe.
